Shakespeare Alive

Conversations about Shakespeare's place in the 21st Century

Join our resident experts Drs Paul Edmondson and Anjna Chouhan for the latest series of our podcast, Shakespeare Alive, featuring guests from across the globe. In each episode they chat with directors, costume designers, podcasters and actors about their work and how they continue to keep Shakespeare alive in the 21st century.    

Our guests for our latest series include: hosts of Not Another Shakespeare Podcast James and Nora, award-winning costume designer Evie Gurney, and award-winning actors Freddie Fox and Adrian Lester.

We ask our guests 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
