Today at noon Pacific is the deadline for our giveaway contest!

The clock is ticking, and this is your last chance…

“Who do you want to see tackle the role of Lear today?”

The only limitation is that the person (male or female) needs to be currently working (so no Richard Burton or even say Jack Nicholson [who hasn’t make a film in the last six years]).

Name your Lear and support your pick with some rationale. You can either tweet it to me with the hashtag #myLear4BSP — that’s the number 4 and the initials for the Bill / Shakespeare Project, or if you want to get more in-depth (i.e., longer than 140 characters) you can either put it into a comment in the thread of our recent podcast interview with Jean Hegland, author of Still Time, OR you can email it to me at bill [at]

The best part about this contest is the prize:
