The Brilliant Bard – Shakespeare & Film


In Association with Liverpool Everyman


In a series of illustrated talks, leading Shakespeare experts will discuss the meaning of four key plays and how they have been adapted for film. What can we learn about different plays through their interpretation by various filmmakers? There will be four sessions through the day:

10am The Merchant of Venice, by Simon Wortham from Kingston University
11.15am The Tempest, Richard Wilson from Kingston University
2pm Othello, Anne Sophie Refskou from the University of Surrey
3pm Much Ado About Nothing, Matthew Pateman from Edge Hill University

There will also be a screening of Carl Hunter and Frank Cottrell Boyce’s Liverpool-set short film A Winter’s Tale (Hurricane Films, 2016) followed by a discussion with the director and Martin McQuillan (Edge Hill University).

This event is open to all and is of particular interest to GCSE and A-Level students.
