“Oh, no! We’re reading Shakespeare?”
I hear this sentiment every year from many middle school English students. And I always tell them to have no fear, because no, we don’t read Shakespeare, and nobody should, in my opinion. Don’t get me wrong, there is reading involved, but not before it’s been seen and heard.
This is one of the reasons I was thrilled to hear that Delaware Shakespeare was performing Henry V at Rockwood Park this summer from July 14 through the 30th. The chance to see a Shakespeare play as it was meant to be seen, live on stage, is an opportunity not to be missed.
