In Character: Shakespeare's plays
associated with John Taylor
To mark the 400th anniversary of William Shakespeare's death we have brought together here over 400 images of actors and actresses in Shakespearean roles.
We currently have no recorded scenes from the following plays: All's Well That Ends Well; Love's Labour Lost; Pericles, Prince of Tyre; Timon of Athens, Two Noble Kinsmen; Troilus and Cressida. If you spot additions that we could be making, please email us at [email protected] and we will share them with a wider audience. Thank you!
