Professor David Crystal - The Tongue that Shakespeare Spoke

When?
16 May 2019 , 2pm -4pm
Where?
Millennium City Building, Wolverhampton, UK

The movement to present Shakespeare in 'original pronunciation' (OP) - a linguistic reconstruction of the accents used in his day - has gathered pace since 2004, when OP productions of Romeo and Julietand Troilus and Cressida took place at Shakespeare's Globe in London. This talk describes the OP events that have taken place during the past decade, explains the nature of the evidence that led to the reconstruction, and illustrates some of the literary and theatrical discoveries that have been made.

Tickets are free but limited; we advise that you reserve your space as soon as possible to avoid disappointment.

Professor Crystal will also be signing books after the event.
