WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
All the World's a Stage is a sparkling and witty entertainment, exploring the pleasures and pitfalls of rehearsing, performing and interpreting Shakespeare's plays. The evening includes personal insights, favourite pieces, sonnets, portraits of great actors past and present, outspoken critical responses to the Bard by other writers, plus a wealth of wonderful, irreverent theatrical stories. Also featured is a lively mixture of reminiscence, readings and songs from plays as diverse as Julius Caesar, The Merchant of Venice, Twelfth Night, A Midsummer Night's Dream, Cymbeline, Macbeth, Henry V, The Tempest and As You Like It. A short Q&A will conclude the evening.
