The 2018-9 Season of the Club is now in full swing and we’re delighted that our President this year, actor, director and theatre professional Emma Rice is visiting for her presidential evening on Tuesday 11 December. Emma is a controversial presence in UK theatre, having run the Cornish company Kneehigh for many years, then moving to Shakespeare’s Globe which she left after only two seasons. Now she is running her own company based in Bristol, Wise Children, with guaranteed funding for five years. Its first production, also called Wise Children, has received rave reviews. The Club’s speakers tend to be ardent admirers of Shakespeare so her talk, entitled “The Trouble with Shakespeare” is sure to offer refreshing insights into her approach to theatre and Shakespeare. Information about meetings is available here.
