  1. The film of Henry 5th with Laurence Olivier many years ago when I was at Grammar School.
    The film of Julius Caesar with Marlon Brando, he did not
    receive the credit he deserved.

  2. Midsummer Nights Dream, it was my first introduction to Shakespeare in my high school days & led to an opening to plays & stories I wouldn’t normally have looked at.50 years on & still enjoying 🤞

  3. It would have to be A Midsummer Night’s dream simply because I saw it at Shakespeare’s Globe on London’s Southbank. Despite being a sweltering day, with uncomfortable bench seating, and having the knees of the person behind in my back, it was incredibly special knowing I was watching it in a replica of the venue that Shakespeare wrote his plays for.

  4. Romeo and Juliet. I’ve seen the play several times, the film and my granddaughter in a school production. So engaging and every time I see it , I’d like the ending to be different!

  5. Merchant of Venice .
    Venice hasn’t changed , and going is like walking round a living set! It’s like being in a time capsule , you can loose yourself in time , fabulous.

  6. While there are wonderful memories of As You Like It beginning with Vanessa Redgrave and most recently with a Northern Broadsides touring production I have to say Macbeth has resonated with me since schooldays and there has never been a more stirring performance than at the Young Vic with Ian McKellen and Judi Dench.

  7. My favourite Shakespeare play is Coriolanus, a play that has everything … action, intrigue, love, and tragedy, as well as being very thought-provoking about the dangers of personal pride being given too much importance.

  8. Midsummer Night’s Dream
    I studied this at school and it’s been my favourite ever since. I have lost count of the number of times I’ve seen it performed

  9. I love The Winter’s Tale. It’s all down to the Bard’s most vivid, yet simple, stage direction: ‘Exit, pursued by a bear’. I imagine Shakespeare grinning as he wrote it.

  10. My favourite Shakespeare play is Midsummer Night’s Dream, which I studied at school, a very very long time ago, and did not appreciate at the time. I have now learnt to understand and appreciate it, and would love to see a live performance.

  11. My favourite Shakespeare film is Romeo and Juliet with Leonardo Di Caprio and Claire Danes 1996/1997. I enjoyed this modern day version of a classic.

  12. Hamlet is my favourite play by Shakespeare because of the complexity of the plot and the complexity especially of the character of Hamlet which can be interpreted in many ways and which gives insight into how our minds work.

  13. My somewhat favorite is – Much ado about nothing – because although I’m not a fan of plays with a bit of comedy, this had an intriguing side to it.

  14. My favourite Shakespeare Play is The Winter’s Tale. I first saw this with my parents with Judi Dench in the starring role when she was a young actress at the Royal Shakespeare Theatre in Stratford. I then saw it many years later with Dame Judi Dench again performing. This play is very thought provoking and I find the ending when well performed is very dramatic.
    I do also like As You Like It – it appeals to everyone and is very pleasing to watch.

  15. Othello is my favourite Shakespeare play. I first studied it in the 1960s for A level English Literature and have seen it many times since on stage and screen. Lenny Henry was my favourite Othello. I would love to win this prize and take my wife of 50 years to see this new production.

  16. Sounds like a brilliant location for a new theatre and very accessible to.
    My favourite Shakespeare play is the Tempest because for today’s viewers it raises interesting questions about sustainability

  17. Antony and Cleopatra – I studied it for A level, so know it better than any other Shakespeare play. I like to catch different versions, though not often performed.

  18. I love A Midsummer’s Night’s Dream. I first saw it at Stratford and again in an outdoor production at Newstead Abbey. The productions were totally different but both extremely enjoyable. My granddaughter came with me to Newstead Abbey and it was her first Shakespearean play. I was so happy that she enjoyed it and went on to see many more.
