Check out this great post by Helen Szamuely on the Anglosphere blog about Shakespeare’s history plays. “[T]he plays are more than anything a long meditation on the concept of England, Englishness and the English crown.” Of the plays she mentions, poor unlettered Lex has only seen the film versions of Henry V — Olivier and Branagh. Both great, but I guess I had better at least read the others she mentions.

So c’mon out to the Utah Shakespearean Festival and see 3 Shakespeare’s, and 3 other plays over a 2 day span! Day tripping to Zion, Bryce, and Great Basin national parks as well.
