Wrath, greed, sloth, pride, lust, envy and gluttony – in 2012 the LATE at the Museum series explores the seven deadly sins and how they play out in modern life.
Join moderator Finlay Macdonald and panellists Professor Michael Corballis, Dr Janet Fanslow and Ruia Aperahama as they discuss the issue of wrath in New Zealand.
Are we an angry society? Is wrath even still applicable in 2012? Our media and our prison population tell us that it is, our national sports are physical and often violent – do we in fact celebrate wrath and its corollary anger?

The Wrath Shakespeare vignette sees us join King Lear and Lord Capulet as voyeurs during shameful moments of their lives. When their daughters don't do what is expected of them, two Shakespearean fathers see red. See how wrath gets the better of men with two different outcomes. One ends in loss of physical control and the other ends in a loss of perspective.
