Shakespeare: The Man who Pays the Rent by Judi Dench
In a series of intimate conversations with actor & director Brendan O’Hea, Dame Judi Dench opens up about every Shakespearean role she has played throughout her seven-decade career, from Lady Macbeth and Titania to Ophelia and Cleopatra.
Guiding us through Shakespeare's plays with incisive clarity, she reveals the secrets of her rehearsal process, shares her personal interpretations of Shakespeare's most famous scenes and invites us to share in her triumphs, disasters, and backstage shenanigans. Instructive and witty, provocative and inspiring, these conversations are brightened by her mischievous sense of humour, striking level of honesty and a peppering of hilarious anecdotes, many of which have remained under lock and key until now.
