Episode 565. Shakespeare Birthplace Trust

Published by austin on

Paul Edmondson, in addition to being a scholar, author, editor, educator, poet, and priest in the Church of England, is the head of research and knowledge for the Shakespeare Birthplace Trust, the UK’s oldest conservation charity and our host for our Pop-Up Shakespeare book launch event. Paul was good enough to sit down and explain the many things the Trust oversees and champions, and reveals fascinating insights about new discoveries and fresh interpretations, challenging old assumptions, evolving understanding of Shakespeare’s New Place and history’s first great literary commuter, the vexed question of Shakespeare’s income, and the location of the vast Reduced Shakespeare Company archives.
