Shakespeare Masterclasses

Shakespeare Masterclasses

A book published in 2020 of interviews with 13 leading Shakespearian actors.

Edited by Ron Destro, founding director of the Oxford Shakespeare Company.

Not an authorship question book, but Ron Destro admits “There is some Oxfordian discussion in the book, since I interviewed three de Vere supporters: Sir Derek Jacobi, Michael York and Jeremy Irons. Primarily, I asked each if knowing the true identity of the author changed the playing of Shakespeare on stage, and each said it didn’t alter performance. But my strategy in doing this was to acknowledge that many of us simply take for granted that Oxford was Shakespeare.”
