Do you think Shakespeare wrote every single word of his canon? Recent scholarship has highlighted this intriguing conundrum once more. Join us for our next webinar, when Prof. Emma Smith ( Hertford College Oxford) will be sharing her findings about ' Team Shakespeare' and how other, unexpected people intervened in these works. She will discuss what might be gained from understanding Shakespeare as a collaborator. Tues. July 6th at 7pm ( book by 6) www.trybooking.co.uk/BCLE £6 (£5 Friends of The Rose)

Dr Hannah O’Regan: Bear baiting in Bankside and beyond:

Another age, another approach to animals...animal baiting was widespread throughout England, but Bankside was a particular focus, with multiple arenas being built to accommodate the crowds. Patronised by everyone from monarchs to maids, baiting was a key part of the early modern entertainment economy. Despite this, it has received relatively little study, perhaps because it runs counter to the image of England as ‘a nation of animal lovers’. This talk presents what is known of baiting from current scholarship and will also present some early findings from the Box Office Bears project.( picture of Bear Baiting by kind permission of the Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York)

Helen and I were glad to be at yesterday's Zoom AGM. As we said, we really enjoy the webinars - they are very interesting and are a good way to stay in touch with The Rose. We hope they'll continue after lockdown.
Looking forward to GreenMatthews. And to this on a similar theme. https://www.shakespeare.org.uk/visit/whats-on/sweet-music-such-art/ 🎻🎶
Weekly readings of the Complete Works of Shakespeare by a global cast, in the order they were believed to have been written. Created in less than a week in response to the global Covid 19 pandemic.
The Edward Alleyn tour was delightful, interesting and informative. Our guide Linda was enthusiastic, prepared and thoughtful. She showed us ten landmarks of Elisabethan London including the St Giles’ Cripplegate church with Edward Alleyn’s magnificent window and John Milton’s resting place, the locations where the Fortune Theatre and the Red Bull Playhouse once stood, Charter House and St John’s Gate and the Priory Buildings. Take your camera and a London map for full enjoyment of the two hours in between corners and alleys steeped in English Renaissance characters and history. A must for lovers of old theatre at a great price!
Lecture tonight (also Live streamed and available on their website) https://www.facebook.com/events/2079742922353135/
Massive congrats to the cast and crew of A Midsummer's Night Dream! Wonderful show!
