Lovers of the Bard will delight in Shakespeare and the ROM workshop

The Royal Ontario Museum will be providing a one-day workshop entirely dedicated to all things Shakespeare on April 14 from 10:30 am to 3:30 pm.

Those who love the plays and poetry of William Shakespeare, or who are fascinated by the history of the Elizabethan period will be able to immerse themselves in a hands-on experience with the opportunity to handle authentic objects. This workshop investigates some of the most serious religious and political issues of Shakespeare’s day, as well as some of the most irreverent, including cannabis, premarital sex and flatulence. The workshop will be instructed by Deirdre Keleher.

Those interested in participating in this fascinating glimpse into Shakespeare’s world can register online at
