He started with his daughter and then son. So writing a book about teaching Shakespeare to kids may have seemed natural: Your book reinvigorated Shakespeare for me, to see his work with fresh eyes. My experience of Shakespeare was dry and hard work at school. How do you convince an adult that Shakespeare is relevant to his or her child if her experience has been similar to mine?

Yours is not an untypical journey.

They get a little exposure to it, and when they do, it's confusing. It literally feels like a foreign language that they can't understand, especially when they try to read it. It's pretty intense reading for someone who doesn't know how to go about it. This is especially true for kids at a very young age, like 6 to They're open to everything.

So what my book tries to do is expose both kids and their parents to the beauties and intelligence — and just plain fun — of Shakespeare with no prior knowledge required.

I had a wonderful meeting recently with an Englishman who has become a very successful businessman in an area totally unrelated to literature.

It was only later in life, in his late 30s, that he discovered and fell in love with Shakespeare for the first time. How did he do it?

He told me that he used to take a group of his employees to London once a year for a blow-out day of fun and food and entertainment, so they could spend some real quality time together.

But about 20 years ago, they were on the South Bank in London and passed The Globe Theater, and tickets were available. And for my friend and his companions, it was like a revelation. He said it was like a mist that disappeared from before his eyes. Shakespeare has enriched his life — as it enriches the lives of all of us who have had this kind of opportunity.

Good actors tell the stories clearly, in a straight line, so that the audience can understand every word. Do you hear back from adults with similar revelations after reading your book? And that's the best part of it. I'm a playwright by profession and that's how I make my living.
