"I can remember being twelve years old and reading Shakespeare for the first time and it feeling like a foreign language. But I was lucky. I had inspiring teachers and interested parents who shared their love for the plays. I remember laughing hysterically at a production of "Two Gentleman", one of the first at the Globe, and being stunned by the thought that "this stuff is really funny". It changed my life. Thanks to this project thousands of teenagers who would not otherwise get that opportunity will be introduced to Shakespeare's immediacy and hopefully they will find themselves laughing as I did - and who knows where those opportunities will lead?"
I'll update as more information becomes available or you can check out @The_Globe.
