Mr. Simon Godwin, Artistic Director at The Shakespeare Company, accepted Ms. Cropsey's invitation to meet her seventh- and eighth-graders who are reading Shakespeare's plays The Twelfth Night and Macbeth. On Monday, March 22, Mr. Godwin spoke about the ways directors are " reading" Shakespeare's plays, and answered students' questions. It was a vivid and friendly atmosphere! And it was a true honor to meet Mr. Godwin!
