An evening with Oliver Ford Davies on ‘Shakespeare’s Fathers and Daughters’ at Bloomsbury Publishing (25% DISCOUNT FOR LPB READERS!)

Bloomsbury will host the RSC’s Honorary Associate Artist Oliver Ford Davies in celebration of his new book Shakespeare’s Fathers & Daughters on June 15th from 6pm to 7:45pm at Bloomsbury’s London offices.

Oliver will be in discussion with Dr Abigail Rokison-Woodall of The Shakespeare Institute, about a lifetime spent in Shakespearean roles, his new book and, most crucially, the Bard’s obsession with familial conflict and especially those unique to the father-daughter relationship.

Judging by his complete works, where it is explored in every shade and more than 20 unique relationships, from Titus Andronicus to The Tempest, it was an obsession that played out again and again in his stories. But why?
In this exclusive event, Oliver Ford Davies talks to Dr Abigail Rokison-Woodall, of The Shakespeare Institute, about his new book Shakespeare’s Fathers and Daughters in what promises to be a frank and lively discussion of fathers and daughters in the Bard’s writing, relating it to the little we know of his own two daughters, and sheds new light on his exploration of the family that so dominated his approach to drama.
