We all knew she is a comedy genius from her previous roles, but her dramatic abilities in this production blew me away. Her use of comedic timing came naturally as she used this tool to the fullest, in many cases stealing the scene!

Never failing to disappoint, he delivered Shakespearean dialogue clearly and fluently, making me think he has spoken this for years.

One way that teenagers and students relate to ‘The Taming of The Shrew’ is through the types of language that Shakespeare used when he wrote the play. Many teenagers consider the language to be beautiful and evocative.

‘The Tragedy of King Richard the 3rd’ was a revolutionary play of its time due to its appeal of all classes ranging from the noblest Queen to the street pheasant. King Richard also explores the concept of what it means to be evil; Pacino’s film reflects this giving an insight on the faces, motives and free will of Richard. Shakespeare’s integrity lies in his accessibility to an audience and his ability to explore values within his plays. King Richard is a man who presents copious ideological characteristics and also throws into confusion many traditional values set into the mindsets of the Elizabethan and post-Elizabethan peoples. The opening lines of the play have Richard speak directly to the audience in the form of a soliloquy ‘Now is the winter of our discontent, made glorious by this son of York,’ this metaphor is a direct link to the character of Richard, a man who is discontent.
