Shakespeare's England  (11 Days)

His work remains the epitomy of what playwrights strive to accomplish, and Shakespeare's plays will live well-beyond another four centuries! Visit the inspirations that drove William to write his plays and sonnets, and the stages upon which they were performed. From the Globe Theater in London to the cottage of the love of his life, Anne Hathaway, located in village of his birth and raising, very little has changed in the 400 years since he first put pen to paper. This is an Edventure for writers and lovers both!
