In 1606 the bubonic plague forced the theaters in London to close
and social gathering to be prohibited.
This was also the year that Shakespeare wrote 3 of his most famous tragedies:
Macbeth, Antony & Cleopatra, and King Lear
That's not to say you should feel any pressure to write
a Shakespearean masterpiece during this shelter-in-place!
But you might want to read one -
and doing so might make you feel more connected.
Had fun sharing some thoughts on "reading with a purpose" Masterpiece Theatre/ Fireside Chat/Shakespeare on Social Distancing/with a touch of Tiger (house cat) King style!
