I think the women who have been involved have benefitted in many ways inclusion, team building, self-confidence, resilience, we could go on and on. I also agree that there is an appetite for this type of intervention and hopefully we will see you again with a bigger spectacular.

I’ve noticed this morning a renewed confidence and a buzz among the women who took part. They have all been to see me at different times throughout the morning, all wanting to talk about the show and seek affirmation that they nailed it.

I’ve also been stopped a couple of times by women who attended family day asking how they get involved in such things in the future!!

Ana is absolutely delighted and has talked non-stop about it. She told me that a number of children had wanted to wear or play with the props. A little boy had left wearing the robot costume absolutely thrilled!!

HAPPY CHRISTMAS EVERYONE - what better way to celebrate the festive season than with singing, dancing and making theatre!

In Volume 1, 13 leading actors take us behind the scenes, each recreating in detail a memorable performance in one of Shakespeare's major roles and in volume 2, there are 12 conversations with #staractors. There's a chatty, intimate tone to the chapters as if interviewer and interviewee are sitting by an open fire with a glass of wine in hand. Probing, insightful questions that throw light on the specific role in the production in question. A #musthave for #Shakespearelovers
