And his favourite Shakespeare quote?


“This looks not like a nuptial.”

My Favourite Thing About The HandleBards:

The combination of respect and comical irreverence that’s applied to Shakespeare’s texts, making them a joy to perform in and completely understandable to watch (if a little ridiculous).

If Shakespeare Was Alive Today:

I would ask him: “If you were to appear on the TV dating show “Take Me Out”, what would your special talent be?”

The Biggest Adventure I've Ever Had:

Getting lost on my bike in Brussels with no phone, no map, no other Bards, and no ability whatsoever of being able to communicate with anyone around me.
