Focusing on As You Like It and The Winter’s Tale in particular, Royal Shakespeare Company Artistic Director Michael Boyd and authors and academics James Shapiro and Richard McCoy discuss faith in Shakespeare’s text and what it asks of audiences today when Paulina says, “It is required you do awake your faith” and what it would have meant when Shakespeare wrote it.
