Shakespeare’s work spans the highs and lows of human existence, from hilarious comedies to dark tragedies, and his views are just as witty and perceptive today as they were four hundred years ago.
As part of our 30th anniversary celebrations, Bell Shakespeare is hosting a series of debates that address and tackle ideas from Shakespeare’s plays, in the context of our modern world.
The premiere event, streamed live from Sydney’s Carriageworks, will kick the series off with a debate on the timely and all-too-resonant declaration from As You Like It: ‘We have seen better days.’
A stellar line up of debaters, Benjamin Law, Jan Fran, Jane Caro AM, Jonathan Biggins, Miriam Corowa and Jess Scully will form two teams and go head-to-head in a debate that will address, challenge and (hopefully) inspire the way we see our world today.
Join us online to watch the first debate in the Bell Debates series, live at 7.30pm AEST on 24 September 2020.
We encourage you to register for a free ticket via th Bell Shakespeare website so that we can send you an email reminder with a link to watch the live stream.
