And his favourite Shakespeare quote?


“If music be the food of love, play on.”

My Favourite Thing About The HandleBards:

I love how happy the HandleBards make people – actors, audience members, people that pass us on the street. It’s really quite infectious. So many good vibes.

If Shakespeare Was Alive Today:

I’d want to know which political leader he’d feature as the central character in his next play. What would he make of Trump?

The Biggest Adventure I've Ever Had:

Getting trapped in the Malaysian Jungle with no food or water for three days by a flash flood, and having to fashion a raft from plastic bottles and my bunkbed in order to escape through leech-infested water.
