And a school project involving A Midsummer Night’s Dream.
And the lectures. I’ve sent and I’m still sending around to libraries, reading groups, schools and everyone I can think of that might even remotely be interested – offering my… shall we call it my array* of lectures on Shakespeare, Marlowe, Elizabethan England, Authorship Question, William Henry Ireland, Sonnets, espionage, School of the Night, whatnot…
So yes – as I said, this is going to be an intensely Elizabethan year. And believe me: you are going to hear about it.
* Yes, we shall: I love the word.
