Wednesday, January 18, 2023 17:30to18:30
Redpath Hall 3461 rue McTavish (McTavish Gates), Montreal, QC, H3A 2K6, CA

The Friends of the McGill Library and Stratford Festival are delighted to partner once again on the 2023 annual Shakespeare Lecture in-person at Redpath Hall.

A familial story of legacy, loyalty and loss, King Lear is perhaps Shakespeare’s greatest tragedy, and one of the greatest challenges he presents. Join director Kimberley Rampersad and actor Paul Gross as they discuss their vision for the 2023 Stratford Festival production of King Lear.

The event will be moderated by Professor Paul Yachnin, Tomlinson Professor of Shakespeare Studies at McGill University.

This event is hybrid. Registrants will have the opportunity to select in-person or online attendance on the registration page. A YouTube link will be sent to those who register for virtual attendance.

The 2023 Shakespeare Lecture is generously supported by Donald Walcot.
