An Evening with Ben Crystal

October 26, 2018 @ 7:00 pm - 10:00 pm MDT

Pay at the door or online here.

Upstart Crows of Santa Fe and the International Shakespeare Center host a public event featuring author, actor, and Passion Practice producer Ben Crystal. Ben will do a talk and demonstration of Shakespeare’s Original Pronunciation. What did Shakespeare’s accent – and that of his actors and audience – sound like? What can we learn from hearing and speaking his works in that accent? And with no recordings or transcriptions available to us, how do we know? Actor and author Ben Crystal (Shakespeare’s Words, Shakespeare on Toast) explores the fascinating 400 year old sound of Shakespeare’s plays and sonnets, Original Pronunciation, showing a world hidden beneath our modern accent readings full of rhyme, rhythm, and a very subtle humour. And a not-so-subtle one too.
