Today’s story is another reimagining, though not of a fairy tale. I don’t want to give away the twist, because I like to give people a chance to figure out who the characters are. I will say, that it is an updating of one of Shakespeare’s plays.
Ever since I was reading Tales from Shakespeare as a child, I have been a huge fan of his work.
One of the highlights of our trip to the United Kingdom last summer was a trip to Stratford-upon-Avon which had always been a dream of mine. It was a lovely little town, mixing the old and new. We didn’t get to see everything I would have liked to, (like a play at the Royal Shakespeare) but we did get to tour Shakespeare’s Birthplace. It was a big thrill for me. I am so grateful to Newell for taking me on the trip last year, because who knows when the attractions will be open again.
Here are a few pictures so you can see them vicariously at least:
Shakespeare is everywhere. 🙂
The birthplace is a real eye-opener. Think about trying to live in these cramped quarters.
Even Newell seemed to be enjoying himself.
The Theater was also amazing, but I didn’t take all that many pictures inside it. However, there was this one banner that I have to share…
I fangirled hard. 😉
Here a couple more from the theater.
I really hope to go back to Stratford someday. It was almost surreal to be walking those same streets that Shakespeare once walked.
