Direct from USA and European performances Lisa returns with her very special performance, which played to sold out houses when she brought it to The Rose in 2015.

Shakespeare and the Alchemy of Gender offers a unique celebration of the power of the eloquence of Shakespeare to build empathy and understanding in a world where the unspeakable seems to happen again and again. Wolpe has played more of the Bard's male roles than any woman in history, always to superlative reviews. 

In Shakespeare and the Alchemy of Gender she performs Romeo, Hamlet, Richard III, Shylock and more, while exploring her growing awareness of her father’s life as a WWII war hero and Nazi resistance fighter. Her work speaks towards liberation from the "gender box" of expectations, and offers a unique and powerful perspective of courage, resilience and hope against her family's troubled background of war, sickness, suicide and despair. 

Join us for what will be a very unique theatre experience.

The Rose is an indoor archaeological site, it is advisable to dress with an extra layer as there is no heating. There are also no toilets so please use Shakespeare’s Globe just a few hundred metres away.
