At Shakespeare Dallas, we are asked all the time: is Shakespeare still relevant today?

This podcast series investigates the social themes of Shakespeare’s works and how these morals play out in modern reality. The relevance of this series to current issues in our community is potent and eye-opening as we encourage listeners to examine tough societal obstacles.The social issues of Shakespeare’s day featured in his plays – class division, racism, sexuality, intolerance, the role and status of women, war, disease – are still burning issues in today’s society. Each episode features panelists from around the country sharing their expertise as we explore our humanity using Shakespeare as a cornerstone.

This new and exciting podcast series will explore these social issues, connecting them straight from the page to our modern world. Our first episode launches at the beginning of November.
