    Thank you, PBS, for deciding to make these materials available to teachers. I saw this performance on the stage, but to also see it, a year later and on film, was magnificent. Now I can’t wait to share it with my British Lit students next fall.
    I receive Globe Theatre e-mails & take students to the Chicago Shakespeare Theater, but with the money crunch, not all students can afford to go, so this is a welcome option. The RSC teacher materials are amazing & help me get students fired up while still allowing me time for the other courses I teach.

    Many thanks to RSC & PBS.

    I would like to share this film w/ my class and assign a project to go w/ the film. However, we are unable to view the film on this site “… due to rights restrictions in our area…” Any suggestions? Is the film not available any longer on the website? Thanks!

    Dear Viewers,

    PBS is working hard on bringing the film back to the website. Once the technical glitch is discovered and taken care of it will be back up and running. Thank you for your patience.
