Shakespeare at Sea is a piece of theatre in education that offers the young playgoer an introduction to many of the characters from Shakespeare's comedies including Feste, the Jester, Toby Belch, Maria, Sly and Sneak, Simple and Mistress Quickly. The tragedies are represented by characters in the subplots such as Hamlet (a mouse),Romeo (a dog) and Juliet(a cat) all of whom contribute to Will's play in some way. Shakespeare at Sea combines fact and fiction to evoke a bygone era and invites you on a theatrical journey with the performers to other imagined worlds. The e-book contains the script of the play, film clips featuring interviews with the writer-director and the collaborators in set and costume design, photos and drawing of costumes, characters and set and a collection of drawings children made after seeing the performance.
