Review quote

"Stunningly simplistic and spankingly brilliant idea...loaded with ideas and stuffed with so much well-intended fun that only the most pompous of purist could dare accuse it of sacrilege."--Venue Magazine "This brilliant collection of re-imagined stories is a perfect introduction to Shakespeare for students of all ages. They are funny, fresh, intriguing and poignant, and use a supreme storyteller's skill to bring us into the worlds of some of Shakespeare's best-loved characters and plays. A must for all teachers who want to excite and inspire their students about Shakespeare's work and the possibilities of theatre."--Jacqui O'Hanlon, Director of Education, Royal Shakespeare Company "An entertaining introduction to the Bard and an invaluable teaching aid, with much to offer both the novice and the enthusiast.... [they] work both as standalone productions and as worthwhile accompaniments to the plays that inspired them." - Exeunt Magazine "Compellingly idiosyncratic portraits of four of Shakespeare's characters... Crouch's drama becomes a provocative examination of the voyeuristic nature of the art form... They left me wanting more I, Shakespeares." - Around the Globe -Stunningly simplistic and spankingly brilliant idea...loaded with ideas and stuffed with so much well-intended fun that only the most pompous of purist could dare accuse it of sacrilege.---Venue Magazine -This brilliant collection of re-imagined stories is a perfect introduction to Shakespeare for students of all ages.
