Shakespeare Sunday Round Up

So Bill and I go back a while. My mother’s a big fan, there’s even a portrait of him hanging in the family dining room (looking snazzy on an oxblood coloured wall). English literature was one of my favourite classes, being able to go over his work and study it properly. It’s when I first realised that Shakespeare is better performed live.

This could have given away his disguise, as he was dressed as Caius in A1 S4, and a peasant wouldn't have been as educated.
