What is today the National Arts Festival began, in 1974, with a Shakespeare Festival organised by Professor Guy Butler and colleagues to inaugurate the Monument complex on Signal Hill overlooking Grahamstown.
Though no longer the main offering, Shakespeare is still on the festival menu; there are no fewer than five 'Shakespearean' shows in 2007, and the bard's work has been Joburged, hiphopped, quarto'd, Zimbabwe'd and, would you believe it, even played 'straight'.
