hich will also trigger a Shakespeare emoji) and don't forget to include @rxtheatre so we can retweet you!

Not a performer? You can still get involved by simply telling us why you love Shakespeare? What's your favourite play? What's your first memory of Shakespeare - school days? A theatre production?
