And his favourite Shakespeare quote?

“There is nothing either good or bad, but thinking makes it so.”

My Favourite Thing About The HandleBards:

The allure of five guys rolling into town, performing Shakespeare and then rolling out the next day. Like mysterious cowboys.

If Shakespeare Was Alive Today:

I would ask him if he would rather fight 20 duck-sized horses or one horse-sized duck.

The Biggest Adventure I've Ever Had:

Running the Brighton Marathon in 2015.
