Panel Discussion

The One I’ll Slay, the Other Slayeth Me, Shakespeare and the Language Revolution

What would Shakespeare think of 21st-century language?

Would he lament its ‘destruction’, or applaud its many innovations? Shakespeare, after all, is believed to have invented over 2,000 words and phrases we still use today – is there really any harm in a hashtag here and there?

Join us as we host a powerhouse panel featuring Elfy Scott, James Evans, Jane Montgomery-Griffiths and Brittanie Shipway at Bell Shakespeare HQ to explore this question and more. Come spend an evening as Shakespeare’s words come roaring off the page to spar with the modern vernacular. Prepare to be #shooketh.

Tuesday 9 April, 6.30pm
The Seed, Pier 2/3
