“Seeing Voices” – Workshop with Master of the Words at Shakespeare’s Globe, Giles Block
Giles Block began his career as an actor, before turning to directing in the 1970s, and working in various venues, including the National Theatre under Peter Hall. In 1999, Mark Rylance appointed him ‘Master of the Words’ at Shakespeare’s Globe, where he has worked ever since. In May 2013 his book ‘Speaking the Speech – an actor’s guide to Shakespeare’ was published by Nick Hern Books. Books will be available for purchase.
