About Being Shakespeare

Back by popular demand and prior to his US tour, Simon Callow reprises his celebration of the world's most renowned playwright in Being Shakespeare.

This revelatory theatrical masterpiece, penned by pre-eminent Shakespeare scholar Jonathan Bate, beckons us into a world populated by the Bard's most loved and most reviled characters, seamlessly interweaving his plays with the life story of the man behind the legend.

Callow's virtuoso performance delivers Shakespeare’s Greatest Hits with astonishing versatility and infectious enthusiasm, making this a truly unique and illuminating theatrical experience.

By Jonathan Bate
Directed By Tom Cairns

Being Shakespeare is written by Jonathan Bate, the pre-eminent Shakespeare biographer and editor of the Royal Shakespeare Company's Shakespeare: The Complete Works. He is Provost of Worcester College and Professor of English Literature at Oxford University and is a Governor of the Royal Shakespeare Company. His book, The Genius of Shakespeare (1997), is widely held as the best modern book on Shakespeare, and his most recent book, Soul of the Age: The Life, Mind and World of William Shakespeare, was published in 2010.
