Shakespeare Expert Shares Insights On The Bard

Even people who can't tell a Shakespeare play from one by David Mamet might know who Barry Kraft is. For years he read the text of the Declaration of Independence before Ashland's crowd on Independence Day.

But there's quite an iceberg below that tip, a lifelong familiarity with the works of Shakespeare. And Kraft shares that knowledge in a series of sessions, in-person and online, dissecting some of Shakespeare's best-known works.

Rogue Theater Company is producing the sessions.

Barry Kraft joins us to give a preview of the content.
