The group chose the date for two reasons: Shakespeare's twins were baptised on that day in 1602, and it was when Twelfth Night played at London's Middle Temple.

This secondary classroom resource is designed for Year 7 and Year 8 English lessons. It can be used as part of the accompanying lesson plan, created for Teachers TV, which includes activities and extension tasks based on this topic. The lesson plan teaches pupils to analyse Shakespeare's soliloquies.
