Description

Daughter, princess, wife, queen, mother, warmonger, widow and crone... monster? Queen Margaret of Anjou – the original Cersei Lannister; model for Claire Underwood; a woman so cutthroat and cold she would make Lady Macbeth sh*t her pants. Only none of that is true and the way we view women in positions of power hasn't changed much. Shakespeare wasn’t a god, he was just a man. His biases and prejudices are our biases and prejudices. Don’t miss this acclaimed comedic commentary on Shakespeare’s propaganda from award-winning comedian, actor and writer, Gillian English.
