Shakespeare

Synopsis
How To Be Epic @ Shakespeare presents a selection of experts, eager to share their top tips about Shakespeare. Throughout the show, experts - including stage and screen’s Maxine Peake, Hip Hop Shakespeare Company’s Lorianne Tika-Lemba and actor Ben Crystal - show you how to rap, act, sound like, dress like and direct Shakespeare. There’s an animated Top 10 Shakespeare Death Countdown, listing the most popular ways Shakespeare’s characters met their untimely end, and a group of international school children to show how to quote Shakespeare in multiple languages. And narrator Cel Spellman shows that you actually speak Shakespeare every day without even realising it.
