  1. Dear John, This is a wonderful idea. Great good fortune to you.
    On a related note, my friend Mike Cassidy, also known to your father, gave me a book just the other day: “A Thousand Times More Fair, What Shakespeare’s plays teach us about justice” by Kenji Yoshino 2011, by HarperCollins Publishers. You might want to take a look; crossover material. Your Uncle, Tom

    1. That’s sounds very interesting. I’ll check it out indeed. In fact, I was starting Henry V and the clergy essentially acts as counsel (and purse) for invading France. Had me reflecting on how comprehensive the church’s role and reach once was.

  2. I have a friend who lives in the city of Shakespeare. He has written a modern version of all things Shakespeare. His name is Paul Hunting. Paul will probably be celebrating near you. Let me know if you would be interested in making contact with him.

  3. Thanks very much for a great initiative and some fascinating ideas!! I can’t say I am inspired to do fully the same, but as a result of reading your blog, I definitely was inspired to read The Taming of the Shrew for the first time, which was v. interesting. I am not sure this play is about marital relations (as you seem to imply in your blog), as Bianca et al and Kate and Petruchio are mostly all courting (and as we know, we all behave very differently while courting as opposed to after the wedding ceremony! My husband started leaving his dirty socks lying around AFTER our wedding, rather than before ;-)…). But I certainly loved your ideas about the variability & fluidity of personality and identity, really interesting, many thanks. Henry V next 🙂 My very best wishes, Phillippa

    1. Your passion of Shakespeare has awakened in me a deeper awareness of what his message was about. Love, loss, time, drudgery of life, relationships and their complications, the ruling classes, kings, power … all those themes that are alive still in our time make the hero known as Shakespeare still relevant today. Thank you dear Horatio for I am forever your dear Portia.
