Description

Shakespeare's Children begins in the 1950s in the "paradise" of Norfolk where Danny is loved by Grandpa, "Fafa", the local poacher but moves to the "hell" of a "Shakespeare Free" council estate in Stratford-upon-Avon called "The Arab Camp" - where violence is the norm. His dysfunctional family and harsh teachers at the Roman Catholic school offer little sanctuary from the brutality. This long awaited story is poignant at times but delightfully funny and its characters are the true children of the Bard.
