On Wednesday 4th October there will be a Lunch from 12.30-2.30 to celebrate the publication in paperback of Angela Thirlwell’s Rosalind: A Biography of Shakespeare’s Immortal Heroine: ‘a model of popular Shakespearean scholarship: engagingly accessible and contagiously enthusiastic.’ Angela will talk about the book and the actress Michelle Terry will read some of Rosalind's speeches: they are curiously 21srt century.
