Taking Shakespeare

Who appreciates Shakespeare anymore? Murph sure doesn’t, and seeks out an older Shakespeare scholar, to bring the Bard’s words to life.

This enchanting, eccentric journey creates a beautiful dichotomy between Shakespeare’s verse and today’s language.

Is it possible for this avid video-game lover to love Shakespeare?

Yes, the play discusses video games, academic tenure issues, unrealistic parental expectations and intellectual ambition but Taking Shakespeare also gives us  many of the Bard’s most thrilling passages.

The plot line revolves around a wayward unfocused youth named Murph who must pass a college level Shakespeare class to appease his domineering mother, Shakespeare and his poetry really become a metaphor for how to live ones life.
