Ben & David Crystal – Everyday Shakespeare

  • Saturday 27 April, 6pm
  • Tickets From £9
  • Main Theatre
Ben & David Crystal

Join the Bard and two of his biggest advocates to revel in the joy of language and the wondrous complexities of human existence. 

In their latest book, Everyday Shakespeare: Lines for Life, son Ben Crystal - actor, author, and producer – and father David- writer, editor, lecturer, and broadcaster on language - gather the finest lines from the lesser-known corners of Shakespeare’s plays and poems. While creating an entertaining trove of trivia, miscellaneous facts, historical context and opportunities for reflection, the Crystals highlight the Bard’s matchless ability to express our everyday thoughts and emotions.
