Shakespeare’s B** and B**
Shakespeare’s B*tches and B*stards
The occasion of Shakespeare’s 456th birthday is being celebrated this year at Dillington House with a wicked look at Shakespeare’s B*tches and B*stards – a weekend spent taking an enthralling view of the Bard’s nastiest shrews and ugliest villains including the demagogue Iago, the shrew Kate and her awful husband Petruccio, the monster Caliban, the witch Lady Macbeth and her murderous mate Macbeth and the greedy Shylock. These characters reveal the Elizabethan’s fears and desires and we will plunge into their world for the weekend, learn more about the time and the language and demystify the Bard and bring him to life for his birthday (metaphorically speaking!)
