Shannon's Shakespeare Shunday
Shakespeare "The Tempest"
The Winter's Tale
It was one of his last plays and was both dark and brooding but still ended happily. Plus it featured the most famous stage direction; "Exit, pursued by bear.", as well as the first written reference to a "dildo".
(Yes, you read that right.)

Troilus and Cressida
It was his take on the Trojan Wars, and ever since it was written it has confounded scholars. Part comedy, part tragedy, part history, and part romance, it was his hardest play ever to classify. But his take on war takes on a modern voice today. Hear the story behind "Troilus and Cressida" on Shannon’s Shakespeare Shunday this Sunday on the eights on https://www.facebook.com/groups/707314020132424/?__cft__=AZV8pjyNCskg1oHQsCZX3GXdsjHR9w0jSYESUrUGzentf-z0m1Kxs-FG4ZICzuAY3bettqDSIxX0N7kKGXR2V8Bxc6geobUkzuzU6qItFUT46g_wr6glqrE0MHRSgGkoJLsand__tn__=-UK-R (KSEF-DB a.k.a. 785 LIVE)!
