In the pilot episode of Sorting Shakespeare, we play the role of the Sorting Hat to ask, “If Shakespeare characters went to Hogwarts, which houses would they be sorted into?” We sort the characters in Hamlet (from ep. 1), Henry V (from ep. 2), and Much Ado About Nothing, looking at both how we’d sort them based on the texts and based on particular productions of the play. Our Hogwarts experts on the show are Danny Bowes and Connor Joel.
