Nearly five centuries later, the social and political considerations of Shakespeare’s oeuvre continue to offer insights pertinent to our times.
David Herskovits, the founder and artistic director of Target Margin Theatre, and the actor Eunice Wong join The Chris Hedges Report to discuss the works of Shakespeare and what they might still teach us about navigating the storm of slings and arrows of our 21st Century. You can find tickets and more information about their play, ‘Pericles’ here: https://www.targetmargin.org/pericles/
