'Don't bore pupils with Shakespeare': Dame Helen Mirren says the Bard should not be taught in schools as it's best experienced for the first time at a theatre

But Helen Mirren says the playwright should not be taught at school and youngsters should instead see his works on stage.

The Oscar-winning actress, 75, said ‘droning through’ the plays in a classroom aged 11 or 12 could be off-putting.
