Screen Shot 2017-01-24 at 12.37.30 PMAlthough the struggle for England’s throne was never simple, the kingdom lasted for over a millennium before the sovereignty passed outside a direct familial line. But when an inept ruler — indecisive, frivolous and vain — angered the established nobility, one man interceded in the transition of power and sparked a civil war that would last 86 years.

Shakespeare & Leadership features a staged reading of excerpts from the play, performed by leaders from the business community alongside professional actors. The reading is followed by a panel discussion in which the participants address leadership questions and themes raised in the text.
