Subject:     Global Shakespeares


I was delighted to hear the announcement from Global Shakespeares that we will shortly be able to encounter


A Brazilian street theatre version of Romeo and Juliet - on stilts 


A Chinese opera King Lear in which one actor plays Lear and his daughters


A Japanese Hamlet who sits motionless on stage whilst mechanical dolls enact his thoughts.


This is obviously a joke. The information was dated April 1st and the tears still run unchecked from my eyes.
