Time Out of Joint: How Shakespeare Heals

May 28, 2020  • Society of Fellows

Artistic Director of Shakespeare Theatre Company Simon Godwin joined us in conversation with Aspen Institute Corporate Secretary and Executive Vice President Eric Motley to discuss the enduring cultural significance of Shakespeare’s work throughout time. Guided by Motley, Godwin discussed the need for theatre, art, and community in the time of the pandemic, as well as the ways in which those particular values take root in Shakespeare’s plays written in times of tragedy and plague.
