Let's Talk Shakespeare: How Did Actors Learn Their Lines?

Nov 28, 2015, 12:00 PM

For the fourth episode of Let’s Talk Shakespeare, I asked “How did actors learn their lines?”. If you were an actor in the Kings Men, your rehearsal process would have been very different from todays! In this episode I talk to my guests about cure scripts, rehearsal time, where acting companies got their costumes and sets, and who exactly would have done to the theatre.

This weeks guests include:

  • Professor Stanley Wells, Honorary President of the SBT 
  • Professor Michael Dobson, Director of the Shakespeare Institute 
  • Dr Elizabeth Dollimore, Outreach and Primary Learning Manager a the SBT 
  • Dr Anjna Chouhan, Lecturer in Shakespeare Studies at the SBT 
  • Ben Crystal, Actor Director and producer
