From The Sir John Falstaff Goblet
Collection to the Complete Plays on CD-Rom, Shakespeare is aiive in multitudinous ways today. But in what state is the English national poet at the new millennium? Who creates Shakespeare in 1999? What does he mean as a dramatist at the Royal National theatre compared to the Globe theatre: why was he chosen as the hologram for our credit cards: and how much is he worth to the tourist trade, or to the actors, scholars and teachers who spend their lives with him? Peter Holland investigates our
Shakespeare and theirs, and yesterday's and tomorrow's. Producer Tim Dee
