A Workshop Helps The Homeless See Themselves In Shakespeare's Plays

Shakespeare wrote for the masses. In the 1600's the pit of London's Globe Theater would have been a boisterous hangout, full of butchers, tanners and commoners who paid a full day's wages to see the show.

That inspired San Francisco homeless advocate Meghan Freeback to bring the Bard back down to earth by bringing Shakespearean actors and a group of homeless people together to discover how the playwright's words can still resonate us today.
