Shakespeare East; Shakespeare West

  • Share on Tumblr

While visiting Weimar I had the pleasure of speaking with my friend Professor Dr Dieter Mehl, formerly of Bonn University.

Dieter has made a special study of what happened to The German Shakespeare Society during the division between the East and West, and took the time to talk to me about it.

Find out more by clicking on the sound-post below, and for those of you who can make it, Professor Mehl will be speaking in Weimar on this very theme on Thursday 10 January at 6.00pm at the Anna Amalia Bibliothek.
