Dame Harriet Walter is regarded as one of the most respected actors of the English stage. From her Tony nominated performance as Elizabeth I in Mary Stuart to her legendary assumptions of Lady Macbeth and Cleopatra, she is particularly known for her work in classical theatre.
While the number of classical roles for actresses tends to diminish with age, Walter has now taken on some of Shakespeare's greatest male protagonists through director Phyllida Lloyd's trilogy of female-prison Shakespeare productions. In Lloyd's second installment that runs at St. Ann's Warehouse through December 13, Walter has received rave reviews as the title role of Henry IV.
Tune in Monday at 9PM to hear an exclusive interview with Dame Harriet Walter on Henry IV, her career, and women in Shakespeare. In addition, the program will feature several of her recorded performances. Stepan Atamian hosts.
