Great Regulars: Jeffrey Brown: What's the key to getting right,

or where do people often go wrong in trying to capture Shakespeare?

Jeremy Irons: I think you've got to have a facility with the language. You've got to know the language and be used to speaking it in such way that it can almost sound colloquial to an audience. You've got to get inside that to find out where the character is, what he's feeling, because that's what you want to transmit to the audience through the words.
