Reading this article by Tom Sutcliffe I agreed and then thought well, we actually adapt the plays to introduce them to children!? Our hope is, I suppose, that once they understand the fun of the plays as theatre shows they will explore the language and enter the world of Shakespeare much like any other fantasy world we dip into. Does any else find it works this way around?
