    A high school teacher and one of his students don Elizabethan garb and travel back in time to London in 1609 to have lunch with William Shakespeare at the Mermaid Tavern. They question him about the writing and performance of his plays-including the use of double meanings, metaphors and puns, his historical sources, contemporaneous political references, and the design of the Globe Theatre-and come away with a greater appreciation for the Bard's work.
