400 years after the publication of his first Folio, two writers discuss how the legacy of Shakespearean characters endures. In Searching for Juliet, Sophie Duncan reveals the surprising story behind Shakespeare's tragic heroine: from enslaved people in the Caribbean and Italian fascists in Verona to real-life lovers in Afghanistan. Isabelle Schuler’s Lady MacBethad gives Shakespeare’s Macbeth a new origin story. There’s no question that this event is the place to be. Chaired by Robyn Marsack.
