Well, what better way to celebrate than to have a look at some famous quotes from the Bard - as if they had been written in Weatherfield.
1. The Balcony Scene (Romeo and Juliet)
another connection to Richard III here.
3. How sharper than a serpent’s tooth it is to have a thankless child! (King Lear)
5. I am one who loved not wisely but too well. (Othello)
7. Misery acquaints a man with strange bedfellows. (The Tempest)
