Out-of-touch elites convinced they are entitled to govern; cynical demagogues who stir the mob to fury, the manipulative and the manipulated; the self-righteous and the self-seeking; the danger of social catastrophe and the yearning for something better: we look at three great plays by Shakespeare which throw light on such perpetually relevant political themes.
