Wednesdays With Will #12 - The Plague
In the early 1600s, Shakespeare, and most of London, faced a situation that many of us can understand today: an outbreak of the plague. This infectious disease kept taverns, inns, businesses and theatres closed for years. What did Shakespeare do without theatres to perform plays in? He wrote!
In fact, many of Shakespeare's greatest tragedies came from this moment in history. His plays took a more tragic turn, perhaps because he was responding to the world around him.
You can be like Shakespeare and use this time, when it's safest to remain at home, to learn a new hobby! Maybe you'll learn to sew, paint or grow a garden. Whatever you learn, feel free to tell us at firstname.lastname@example.org - we'd love to hear what you plan to do!
