Presented in association with Bell Shakespeare

A special performance from John Bell AO, who founded Bell Shakespeare based on his belief that all Australians should have access to the works of Shakespeare in performance.

In an excerpt from One Man In His Time, John shares his reflections on the timeless and poetic language of Shakespeare’s plays and his lifetime spent performing and directing them.

This is a fascinating look into the enduring power of language and theatre.
