Brush Up Your Shakspeare

06 April 2020 - 06 April 2020
Everyone knows Romeo and Juliet, Twelfth Night, Hamlet, Macbeth, and Richard III (or knows of them at least). Even Richard II, As You Like It, and Antony and Cleopatra can be said to be well-known William Shakespeare plays. But what about the others? He wrote or collaborated on nearly forty, after all. Margaret McDonaugh invites us to have a look at some of the least-known plays by the Bard.
