- Every Friday (ish) we share five links to interesting things we’ve found or looked at that week. These cover Shakespeare, gender, theatre, arts, or anything else that we stumble across. Click here to browse the archives, or click on the labels below to search by topic.
Tweet us any suggestions with the hashtag #sfg5.
Sorry it’s late… again… But, hey, a ticket deal!
PS – big thanks to everyone who came to Shakespeare Shuffle this weekend!
- Soulless, from Anonymous Is A Woman Theatre Company. Written by our very own Leila Sykes. It opens TONIGHT and runs for two weeks.
TICKET DEAL: we’ve arranged a special £5 off ticket deal for SFG followers. Just book your tickets and use the code SMOOTH15.
- Dan Ackroyd on the new all-female Ghostbusters cast (who’ve just been announced, incidentally). Refreshing, compared to the shocking backlash in Hollywood and among some of the original cast.
- Michael Billington’s A to Z of modern drama. Not finished reading this yet (and it’s a couple of years old) but interesting so far.
- Why Shakespeare Loved Iambic Pentameter. A fun video from TED-Ed, mostly useful as a refresher or for those new to verse, but with some helpful concepts for teaching or workshops.
- And finally… last week we sat down with Permanently Bard, The HandleBards, and The Merely Players for an interview with Everything Theatre. We had a great chat, and you can read the feature here.
