Watch a 60 Second Shakespeare

"Me Quote Shakespeare?"

By Charlton School, teacher Keith Park

Featuring Charlton School students.

Watch "Me Quote Shakespeare?"

About this film

The poem "Me Quote Shakespeare?" is performed on stage at Shakespeare's Globe Theatre. It illustrates the idea that although Shakespeare's language may sometimes be seen as difficult or obscure, we are often quoting Shakespeare without knowing it.

The poem consists mainly of lines from Shakespeare's plays that have passed into common usage.

It's performed as call and response - one person recites a line and everyone else repeats it. This lets non-speaking pupils with profound and multiple learning disabilities participate in some way - by rocking, clapping or stamping for example, to the rhythm of the poetry.

It was brilliant, the best one i've seen so far. I thought it was clear and involved a lot of people. Plus it was on the globe stage - i'd have loved to go up there and perform! Brilliant.

It was good
