Shakespeare in Swahili: An Illustrated talk by Edward Wilson-Lee

Tara Extras

Wed 19 October


Edward Wilson-Lee’s remarkable book, Shakespeare in Swahililand, provides a fascinating account of Shakespeare in East Africa – where at one time there were more productions of Shakespeare in a single year than in London’s West End!

An exciting prelude to the all-Black Hamlet coming to Tara Theatre in the following week.

Brought up in Kenya, Dr Edward Wilson-Lee teaches Medieval and Renaissance literature at Sidney Sussex College, Cambridge.

His illustrated talk will include a Q & A session, followed by book-signing. 

Shakespeare in Swahililand will be available for sale at the event.
