My concept for this was spawned by the sudden resurgence of the terms 'liberal' and 'conservative' during the summer of 2005. It took me to the 1960's, a period of love and hate and 'the generation gap'. My hybrid melded Shakespeare's world with the Renaissance of the `60's. Poet shirts, long hair, men's beards, violence in the streets, the use of potions and 'mortal drugs' and even a reliance on the stars (age of Aquarius) brought both worlds neatly together.
