Shakespeare in High!

 

 

To-bacco or not To-bacco?

That is the question.

 

Not only in Tobacco Factory Theater does Shakespeare make his appearances.

But…he is in fact the face of different smoke brands around the globe.

It’s quite ironic how the playwright himself becomes the icon and the inspiration of this life-threatening vice, whereas in the Elizabethan period, smoking is strictly prohibited in theaters.

Smoking kills.

So does Shakespeare?
