THE DAVID SHIPWAY LECTURE – A FREE PUBLIC EVENT
Saturday 8th June at 2 pm

Dr Jan Graffius, Curator at Stonyhurst College will talk on “Lady Macbeth is Uncle Donald” – How the Jesuits censored Shakespeare.
Drama was central to Jesuit education. Dr Graffius takes a lighthearted look at how they reconciled their comprehensively masculine students with the complex demands of Shakespeare’s plays.
After the lecture there will be the opportunity to enjoy a glass of wine or soft drink.

 

The David Shipway Lecture is a free public lecture promoted annually by the Friends of Blackburn Museum & Art Gallery in memory of one of our most valued members.
