Sensational Shakespeare

Date: 25th Apr 2016 @ 9:48pm

In class, we have been reading Shakespeare's  "A Midsummer's Night Dream" (which you assure me is just as exciting as reality T.V). For your homework, I would like you to write a letter from Shakespeare to his father, telling him all about his time in London and his play writing. As Shakespeare, you are part way through writing A midsummer's Night Dream and tell him briefly about the plot so far in your letter. Watch this video to give you lots of information about his life in London.
