Garrick’s Adulation and Adaptation of William Shakespeare

This event has finished Took place on: Thursday, 30th Nov 2017

David Garrick is commonly credited with creating what we might now call “The Shakespeare Brand.” Despite his apparent devotion to this dramatist, he rewrote many of the plays, often repeatedly, before presenting them to London audiences.

This talk will present the disparities apparent in Garrick’s response to Shakespeare, which veered significantly between hero worship and textual butchery.

Cost: £10
