Which Shakespeare Character Would You Invite to Thanksgiving?

Shakespeare ThanksgivingIt’s almost that time: Time to eat ourselves in oblivion among family, friends, and the occasional random stranger. But what if you could sit yourself beside one of Shakespeare’s creations come Thanksgiving? Would you choose Ophelia, who’d surely be too distraught to notice your stealing her yams? Or Henry V, who would give all his fame for a pot of ale—and would therefore never run dry at your table? Pick your partner and share it with us on social media by November 26 to win a handcrafted beverage from Peet’s Coffee & Tea on us!

Simply tell us your guest of choice—and some words as to why—on our Facebook wall or by tweeting to @calshakes with the hash tag #shakesgiving. We’ll pick our favorites and send Peet’s certificates their way.

    I would invite Lady Macbeth because we could share out dreams of being queen (Duncan’s in her way, kate middleton’s in mine)…except I’d have to make sure to bring a tide-to-go pen, because spill a little cranberry on her and she’ll be shouting “out damn spot”!
