In rehearsal: The Winter's Tale

Am about to go take the production shots for this new production of The Winter's Tale at Shakespeare's Globe. Here's a glimpse inside the rehearsal room. It's directed by Michael Longhurst and stars Rachel Stirling, John Light and Niamh Cusack. It also features David Yelland, who I once played page boy to - but that's another story. 

Next up: Four shows at the Globe

For those people who follow this blog, you'll know that I spend a fair amount of time at the Sam Wanamaker Playhouse at Shakespeare's Globe. Looks as though that won't change in the near future. 

I am delighted that Shakespeare's Globe have booked me for four big Shakespearean shoots in the candlelit space. The outgoing artistic director, Dominic Dromgoole takes directing duties on The Tempest with personnel news to follow on the other three: Pericles, Cymbeline and The Winter's Tale.
