World Theatre Day

William Shakespeare Bookends by Bradley & Hubbard (LEO Design)

Today is World Theatre Day, celebrated each 27 March.  Each year, an internationally-recognized theatre luminary is selected to compose and circulate an International Message, reflecting on the importance of theatre to the world and human culture.  This year’s message will be presented by five different theatre professionals in five different parts of the world: Ram Gopal Bajaj (India), Maya Zbib (Lebanon), Simon McBurney (UK), Sabina Berman (Mexico) and Were Were Liking (Ivory Coast) .

As theatre luminaries go, who could top The Bard himself, William Shakespeare?  Shown above, an English cast brass letterknife—topped with The Master’s likeness. Please click on the photo above to learn more about them.
