Impressed with history!
*Back in the 1500’s, plays were big business and new material was always in demand. This kept Shakespeare busy as he wrote plays that capture the complete range of human emotion and conflict... comedies, tragedies and romances. We all probably know of his popular plays Romeo and Juliet, Macbeth and Hamlet having read them in high school. His plays are still highly popular and continue to be studied and interpreted. In fact, you can attend a performance of As You Like It right now at the National Theatre in London.
