Shakespeare has writer’s block. Nothing inspires him. The best he can come up with is “Now is the winter of our irritation!” Postcards from Shakespeare by Allison Williams is so much more than your typical Shakespeare spoof.

The Tragicomedy of Julia Caesar

The Tragicomedy of Julia Caesar

by Dave Hammers

Sarah and Dave think it would be fun to direct a play for drama club. And they both love Julius Caesar. What could go wrong?

How about a drama diva who wants to play the lead, wants her way with the story, and wants a post-death dance number? Rome is now in Georgia, Brutus is allergic to peanut butter, and there might be a giant killer robot on his way to crush Caesar's enemies. Nothing wrong at all.

We had a wonderful experience with this play! We prepared it with a group of grade 8/9 students, and the humour and language used in the play were right in their comfort zone.
