Our digital fringe festival is linking up to the Letters Live #ReadALetter project. Contributors are being asked to write a letter from a Shakespeare character or a character inspired by one of his plays and then read it online with members of the company on Tuesday at 4pm. It is open to all and recordings of all the letters will be sent to the project. If the writer/contributor does not want to read the letter themselves then one of our members will read it for them.
