Shakespeare: pantaloons at the ready!
Three articles in Inside Time caught my eye.
Inspirational Educator Awards were given to 2 drama teachers who have staged several Shakespeare plays in prisons, including: Macbeth; Julius Caesar; and, The Merchant of Venice. One of the teachers is quoted: “…participants build empathy, confidence, public speaking and teamwork skills.”
Something I was not aware of: there is a ‘London Shakespeare Workout Prison Project’ which has been running for 21 years. Check it out.
Be happy, be safe and be kind.
