My Favourite Thing About The HandleBards:

The total joy and imagination that fuels a HandleBards show. Oh and the fabulous shorts.

If Shakespeare Was Alive Today:

I’d take him to a karaoke bar and demand that we sing Dire Straits, Romeo and Juliet, together. He’d smash it.

The Biggest Adventure I've Ever Had:

Working as an English teacher in Vietnam. My friend and I had unknowingly been assumed to be guest performers at a school festival. The only song my friend and I could think of as we were pushed onto stage was ‘If You’re Happy And You Know It Clap Your Hands’. We maintain that slow clapping still counts.
