Watch Ages Of Man
- 1 hr 44 min
The art of acting has rarely been demonstrated with such brilliance as in Sir John Gielgud's Ages of Man. Adapted from George Rylands's anthology, the one-man performance features a selection of Shakespearean soliloquies and sonnets exploring the journey of life from birth to death. Showcasing the preeminent actor's extraordinary talents, Ages of Man was performed to sold-out audiences around the world and won Gielgud a special Tony Award for "contribution to theatre for his extraordinary insight into the writings of Shakespeare." This Emmy Award-winning performance - produced for television and presented in two parts - was originally broadcast on CBS in 1966 and is now available for the first-time ever in any format.
