Original Pronunciation Maori session ~ Public Talk with Ben Crystal

What did Shakespeare’s accent – and that of his actors and audience – sound like? What can we learn from hearing and speaking his works in that accent? And with no recordings or transcriptions available to us, how do we know?
Actor, author, & producer Ben Crystal (Shakespeare’s Words, Shakespeare on Toast) with a Maori actor explores the fascinating 400 year old sound of Shakespeare’s plays and sonnets. And for the first time ever, with a Kiwi twist – showing a world hidden beneath our readings in modern English accents full of rhyme, rhythm, and a very subtle humour.
