Time for this year’s A to Z reveal. And this year’s theme is…Shakespeare’s plays!

If you have been following this blog for a while, you’ll know I’m a huge fan of the Bard, and have been since I was about twelve, at which age I first read Julius Caesar. I found my sister’s copy, which she had studied in Year 10, and opened it up to read. Next thing I knew I was reading it aloud, declaiming speeches all over the house. I had never before been so excited by anything I had read!
Then there was Wayne and Schuster’s comic skit, Rinse The Blood Off My Toga. My father and I listened to a recording and quoted bits to each other. I’ll talk more about this further down the track, but meanwhile, you can see the visual version on YouTube if interested, along with other Wayne and Schuster skits.
I’ll be talking about plays, characters, productions, actors and what films and books have been inspired by Shakespeare.
And, like every year except last year, when I did Greek myths, I will have a hard time thinking of something starting with X.
Oh, well. See you in April.
