The Tempest Royal Shakespeare Company | Live Broadcast

The Trip Last week I watched a live broadcast of the Royal Shakespeare Company’s The Tempest. Yes, Shakespeare. Oh how I dreaded the topic in High School. ‘I don’t understand it’ I’d shout. ‘It’s so boring’ I’d cry. ‘Why do we have to study something so old’ I’d moan. Until…
