The Next Complete Works
Shakespeare’s Globe have just announced their exciting 2012 project -a new Complete Works of Shakespeare. This will see the Globe present 38 plays (don’t get me started on the absence of Edward III and Thomas More!) over six months, each one in a different language.
The Bardathon was founded in the spirit of ‘event Shakespeare’, based on the RSC Complete Works of Shakespeare, and as such I’m strongly considering doing the same again, seeing the lot. This will be something of a financial and logistical challenge, particularly as London is less convenient to be popping to regularly than Stratford. Watch this space though; I thrive on challenges, and it’d be a real shame to let this opportunity pass.
