December 1, 2020

Harriet Gordon-Anderson joins James to perform and unpack arguably the most famous speech in all of Shakespeare’s oeuvre from Act 3, Scene 1 of Hamlet: “To be, or not to be”. They delve into the world of Hamlet, pulling apart the character’s motivations, how the play’s gender politics play out in the 21st century and how Shakespeare’s language so perfectly encapsulates our emotions and experiences. Harriet Gordon-Anderson is an actor who has appeared for Bell Shakespeare in The Miser (2019) and Hamlet (2020). She returns to the stage in 2021 to reprise her critically acclaimed role as the Prince of Denmark in Hamlet.
