Setting Shakespeare Free Ira Aldridge and Paul Robeson

Thurs 20 Oct

2016 is Shakespeare’s anniversary year, and never before have so many of the Bard’s greatest roles have been played by BAME actors. But two great men called for this to happen long ago, and worked for it: Ira Aldridge and Paul Robeson. Tony Howard from the Multicultural Shakespeare project at the University of Warwick tells their stories.
