William Shakespeare (c. 26 April 1564 - 23 April 1616) was an English playwright, renowned by many as the world's greatest writer in the English Language. Among his plays are "Romeo and Juliet," "Hamlet," "Macbeth" to name but a few. HELEN STREET grew up in Yorkshire in the north of England, and while living in York became involved in theatre and education, regularly working with children on productions of Shakespeare's best-known plays. She now divides her time between England and France, where she is renovating a semi-derelict farmhouse. CHARLY CHEUNG was born and grew up in Singapore, and studied illustration at London University of the Arts at St Martins College. The Real Reads Shakespeare series is her first major commission.
