Topics addressed include Shakespeare's youth, marriage, and family life; the fascinating story of the Globe Theatre and Shakespeare's life as a playwright and actor in London; an introduction to Shakespeare's plays and the challenges of performing them; and Shakespeare's enduring legacy--the enormous influence he still holds over the arts, culture, language, and society hundreds of years later.
