 .....I  think  it's in French  ( ?)
 but if you have never seen any Shakespeare , now is the time :

In parallel  to the Olympics , The Globe theatre London  is staging Shakespeare in 38 languages and  ..
In Rouen THIS Sunday , at the place st Marc you can see an extract of Henry  V1 played by the piccola familia .. click on the link for more info ! I cannot join you, sadly  but next week there is also a  VERY English   Film  which I will and you should see . Its a comedy with brilliant English actors  called   Indian Palace .,225513-video-22596

The avant premiere is on Tuesday 8th at 8pm

 There is also a VERY American film by Madonna  ( ?!) coming out called W/E  But the critics are not good. It's about  Wallace Simpson  and  (King) Edward  who abdicated for her. You may have already seen the KINGS SPEECH  in a very different style. If not You  MUST  first .. It was  So British and Brilliant !..
