Shakespeare's Late Plays - recorded at the Globe's Playhouse
Andrew Marr celebrates the later life and works of Shakespeare with Simon Russell Beale, Jeanette Winterson, Dominic Dromgoole and Katherine Duncan-Jones.
Andrew Marr presents a special edition of Start the Week, celebrating the later life and works of William Shakespeare. Recorded at the Globe's candle-lit Sam Wanamaker Playhouse, the actor Simon Russell Beale and Artistic Director Dominic Dromgoole discuss the late romances. The writer Jeanette Winterson explores her personal connection to The Winter's Tale, and the academic Katherine Duncan-Jones questions whether Shakespeare ever gave up on life in London to retire to Stratford-upon-Avon, and the relevance of his will that left his wife their 'second-best bed'.
