Shakespeare Tube Map

The Royal Shakespeare Company has just launched merchandise (including a handy poster for classrooms) based on a 'map' of connections inspired by the London Underground Map. The map shows how characters 'migrate' into each other across the plays :-

The lines include: lovers (red), mothers (pink), fathers and daughters (green), villains (light blue), heroes (dark blue), strong and difficult women (turquoise), warriors (black) and fools (orange). Interesting intersections include Henry V who meets on the warrior and hero line, and Lady Macbeth on the strong and difficult women and warrior line.

Available at the RSC shop.
