Shakespeare Alive

Conversations about Shakespeare's place in the 21st Century

Join our resident experts Drs Paul Edmondson and Anjna Chouhan for our podcast, Shakespeare Alive, featuring guests from across the globe. In each episode they chat with actors, directors and scholars, hearing all about their work to keep Shakespeare alive in the twenty-first century.    

Our guests for series two include: Rob Myles, Artistic Director of The Show Must Go Online; Flute Theatre’s Kelly Hunter; co-founder of the Guildford Shakespeare Company, Matt Pinches; and award-winning literary critic and historian, Dr Islam Issa.

We ask our guest and listeners to share one modern-day item that they think should be included in an imagined Shakespeare museum of the future. What do you think of their choices, and what would you choose? Let us know at
