NEWS! There’s a special performance taking place in Stratford-upon-Avon on 16 February which will be a lot of fun. It will feature past and present members of the RSC and include a performance of Gilbert’s version of Rosencrantz and Guildenstern. It will feature Edward Bennett, who has just been announced (4 Feb) as Berowne in Love’s Labour’s Lost and Benedick in Much Ado About Nothing at the RST from October-March.

Listening to the Audience now contains links to a series of clips of audio recordings I’ve made on several productions of Hamlet as a first step in my project to gather memories of Shakespeare in performance. I’ve written a post on it for the RSC’s MyShakespeare blog. During the past year I’ve also completed a walking guide to Shakespeare’s Stratford, and more information is available through the tab above.
The Online Resources page contains information about some of my favourite Shakespeare websites, and you’ll find information about me, including my work and projects I’ve been involved in, on the About Me pages.
