9pm - Macbeth With Ethan Hawke; 10pm - The Comedies With Joely Richardson

Ethan Hawke invites viewers to join him in his quest to play Shakespeare’s murderous Thane of Cawdor by uncovering the true story that served as inspiration, immersing himself in some of the most memorable and innovative productions and discovering Shakespeare’s extraordinary insights into the criminal mind.

Joely Richardson and her mother Vanessa Redgrave investigate the legacy of these two brilliant cross-dressing comedies and the great comic and romantic heroines created by Shakespeare in "Twelfth Night" and "As You Like It."
