Join us for morning tea, film screening and an in-cinema discussion with host Jan Epstein and Shakespeare scholar Dr David McInnis. Kenneth Branagh directs and stars alongside Judi Dench and Ian McKellen in this compelling historical drama about the final days in the life of William Shakespeare. Written by Ben Elton. The year is 1613, Shakespeare is acknowledged as the greatest writer of the age. But disaster strikes when his renowned Globe Theatre burns to the ground. Devastated, Shakespeare returns to Stratford, where he must face a troubled past and a neglected family. Haunted by the death of his only son Hamnet, he struggles to mend the broken relationships with his wife and daughters. In so doing, he is ruthlessly forced to examine his own failings as husband and father. His very personal search for the truth uncovers secrets and lies within a family at war.
