29. Finding Truth in Fair Verona: Juliet, Shakespeare, and Love

September 30, 2017 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

Not many men would volunteer to travel abroad to become one of Juliet’s secretaries, but author Glenn Dixon does just that, in the name of research and in a quest for understanding the elusive truth of heartbreak and healing. As he learns about himself and about the real story of Romeo and Juliet, he discovers extraordinary and unexpected truths about love. Join Glenn andBen McNally in this conversation about broken hearts, the Bard, and the beautiful tradition of Juliet’s wall of letters from the lovelorn.

Co-presentation of Kingston WritersFest and Thousand Islands Playhouse
