Although in the public playhouses of Shakespeare’s time female roles were played by boys, awareness is growing of the participation of women themselves in early modern drama. Much of this took place at great country houses like Knole in Kent, home of Lady Anne Clifford. Come and hear lecturers from University College London explore Clifford's connection with Samuel Daniel's Tragedie of Cleopatra, while actors recreate scenes from the play.
