The Greater Shakespeare Tube Map

In case you were wondering whether all of England had become a Shakespeare entertainment park, here is the official RSC restaurant placemat maze. You'll have to provide your own crayons.
But can you help get little Willy back home in time for Sunday matinee?
Some of it is quite droll (ah, those Brits and their cultural heritage). But you need to get to the enlarged version to see the details. Ophelia's station is marked with a boat ("Riverboat Service"), Titus Andronicus has crossed fork and spoon ("Restaurant"), light blue lines indicate "Strong and Difficult Women," Richard III has wheelchair access and Prospero has a warning for "Side Winds." Hamlet's station is the only one marked with airport access and the tiny, tiny, tiny box next to it says, I think, "Interchanges between heroes and warriors may delay your journey."
