Shakespeare Goes Underground

Shakespeare has been quoted in many places for many reasons before now, but plans by  London Underground to use Shakespeare quotes on tube trains may yet be the most outlandish!

Bosses at London Underground have asked tube drivers to mix quotes from various authors, philosophers and great thinkers with their usual announcements. The initiative is being introduced on the Piccadilly line where drivers and station staff have been issued with a booklet of quotations.

So if you want to brush up on your Shakespeare skills, one way would be to buy a travelcard and ride the tube for the day!! Alternativley, you could study this great Shakespearen tube map, created by the Royal Shakespeare Company, which shows what the tube would look like if Shakespeare was in charge…
