Shakespeare is for everyone, even folks who think otherwise. If you’re in that camp, give The Bard an(other) opportunity to show you that his work can be meaningful to you, as it is steeped in the various facets of the human condition — from ambition, conflict and love, to deception, suffering and transformation. And it’s entertaining!

So check out one or more of Shakespeare’s plays, or maybe his sonnets, using the lists below as a guide. Many are available to stream for free. Also listed are documentaries and other programs and films about or inspired by Shakespeare. Let him inspire you like he inspires me!
