Dr Wright talks on Shakespearean actors and their linguistic – and addictive – legacy at St Andrew by the Wardrobe Parish Church, London, on Monday April 25, 2016. This talk forms part of events at the church to mark the 400th anniversary of Shakespeare’s death and celebrate his links with the parish. Shakespeare worked close by at the Blackfriars Theatre for at least 15 years and would have known the medieval church well. He eventually bought a house in Ireland Yard, which was also in St Andrew’s parish.
Before the talk there will be a service following a format that Shakespeare would have recognised, with music by The English Chamber Choir.
