Directing Shakespeare

Almeida Artistic Director Rupert Goold in conversation with Ben Power, who he collaborated with on Richard II for the BBC’s Hollow Crown series, talk about the process and practice of directing Shakespeare. They discuss 2016's Richard III, as well as Rupert’s productions of The Merchant of Venice with Ian McDiarmid at the Almeida, Macbeth with Patrick Stewart and Kate Fleetwood, The Tempest and Romeo and Juliet.



Almeida Questions is an eclectic programme of pre-show discussions which consider some of the questions raised by the work on our stage. In each discussion, invited panellists dig into the key issues and ideas emerging from the show.
