Shakespeare Quiz Thursday, May 31, 2007

Presenter:
William Kremer

Guests:
Bruno and Felix from Regent London

Programme Summary
In this programme, we quizzed Bruno and Felix from Regent School in London about the language of Shakespeare and the stage.

Some of the questions in the quiz were based on material found on the following pages:

Words in the News: Royal Shakespeare Company's new theatre
Entertainment! Shakespeare's Globe

Debate
The programme also featured a debate. Today's topic was about whether or not Shakespeare could be appreciated in languages other than English. We invited the audience to vote for who they thought should win the debate... see the final vote below:

1: Shakespeare can be appreciated in other languages (Felix)
 
 (50 %) 
2: Shakespeare can only really be appreciated in English (Bruno)
 
 (50 %)
