Shakespeare Uncovered Hugh Bonneville and Christopher Plummer
January 31 at 8 and 9 p.m.
Two actors share their insights into playing timeless characters penned by the Bard. Bonneville started his career as an understudy for Ralph Fiennes in A Midsummer Night's Dream at the Open Air Theatre in London's Regent's Park. He revisits the theatre where his love for Shakespeare blossomed and catches up with Ralph to talk about why the play has enduring appeal. - Then Plummer originally played the role of King Lear under the direction of Sir Jonathan Miller, who has directed the play six times. Plummer explores how the work might have been staged during Shakespeare's time, and acclaimed actors Sir Ian McKellen and Simon Russell Beale give their insight into playing the part of the troubled king.
