And then up piped Mr Lane. "One or two people had expressed the opinion that children should not be exposed to this sort of thing, so I told them you'd have a job to teach Twelfth Night without it. There's women dressing up as men and falling in love with a woman who happens to be a man. It's riddled with homosexual ambiguity. There's transvestism. You can't avoid the sexual innuendo, and people do it for O-level (sic)."
Warming to his theme, Mr Lane continues: "There's Romeo and Juliet about under-age sex, Julius Caesar is about assassination. How Shakespeare gets on the syllabus I don't know."
