A crucial session for anyone wanting a deeper insight into the works of William Shakespeare in the year of his 400th anniversary. The colourful words and vibrant world of the world’s greatest playwright are brought brilliantly to life in Shakespeare on Toast by actor Ben Crystal. Sweeping cobwebs from the Bard – his language, his life, his world – Crystal reveals man and work as relevant, accessible, alive. This is a book for everyone, whether you’re studying Shakespeare for the first time or you’ve never set foot near one of his plays, but have always wanted to. It smashes down the walls that have been built up around him, that have sometimes seemed to turn Shakespeare into an untouchable literary gure. Shakespeare, Crystal reminds us, invented popular culture...
Ben Crystal is an actor and writer. He studied English Language and Linguistics at Lancaster University, before training as an actor. He has worked in TV, lm and theatre, including the 2006 season at Shakespeare’s Globe, and is a narrator for RNIB Talking Books, Channel 4 and the BBC.
The Petworth Bookshop will be selling copies of Shakespeare on Toast at this event.
