William Shakespeare is dead and there's not really much we can do about that but all is not lost for all you ruff wearing poetry reading, theater going types, a selection of his works have been reinvented using the rather unlikely medium of sock puppets.

Thanks to the Scottish Falsetto Sock Puppet Theatre (company) a number of Shakespeare's works can now be viewed online on their my space page personally I'm looking forwarded to when they branch out from Shakespeare and get to work on their full sock puppet edition of War and Peace...
