Shakespeare on BBC World Service Radio

This week on BBC Radio's The Word: a special programme on the international significance of Shakespeare.

Broadcasting from Stratford-upon-Avon, Harriett Gilbert will be meeting prominent members of the Royal Shakespeare Company, including the South African actress Janet Suzman, to mark the RSC’s Complete Works Festival. It will be the first time theatre companies from around the world will come together to perform all of Shakespeare’s plays, sonnets and long poems in one venue.

From the Japanese Titus Andronicus to the Mandarin King Lear, from the pan-Arab Hamlet to the all-male Russian version of Twelfth Night, we’ll be exploring how the English playwright became the world’s favourite wordsmith.
