THE GLOVER’S SON: HOW SHAKESPEARE BECAME A HOUSEHOLD NAME

Join the Sage Academy for Lifelong Learning and Goucher theater professor Michael Curry for this program that looks at the unlikely history of how Shakespeare became the best-known writer in the world. First, the program will show how a series of lucky events, many clouded in mystery, lead Shakespeare from being the humble son of a glove maker in a rural English town to becoming one of the most loved playwrights of his age. Then we will look at how, even after a life of fame and prosperity, Shakespeare’s work almost faded into obscurity.  Who were the people and what were the events that elevated Shakespeare from near obscurity into becoming a household name around the world
