Peer Into The Playbill

Sex and Shakespeare

Long before Playboy and OnlyFans, Shakespeare knew that sex sells. His works have titillated audiences and academics for centuries. From the failed swearing-off of sex in Love's Labour's Lost to Beatrice and Benedick’s lusty banter in Much Ado About Nothing, Maev Beaty moderates this passionate discussion about the conduct of Shakespeare’s characters in courtship and love with Professor Paul Yachnin from McGill University, Love's Labour's Lost director Peter Pasyk, and Professor Kim Solga of Western University.
