Silent Shakespeare


In the film industry’s silent era, many films of both verve and variety adapted Shakespeare’s plays for popular audiences. Come and sample these rare, surviving old films in an evening that takes us on a tour of some fascinating, touching and entertaining Shakespearean moments from early film history. The evening will be animated by wonderful live music (played by pianist Jonny Best), by performance interjections from live actors and by lively commentary from Professor Judith Buchanan (University of York), an expert in silent cinema and in Shakespearean performance history.
