Today is William Shakespeare’s birthday and also the day that he died. Isn’t that neat? I love how so many of the phrases that he coined are part of our language today and are even regarded as cliches by some. The photo shows a page from The Miracle of Language by Richard Lederer and is from a chapter all about the gift of language given to us by my hero, William Shakespeare. Please read it carefully. I think it will blow your mind!
We have spent the afternoon on costume call with people coming along to be fitted up for our production Until the Day Break. It was an epic afternoon with most of the cast sorted. The character whose story I have written is Mary Angove Gill and the photo shows Mandy Rolleston who is to play her, trying on her flamboyant purple dress. Mandy brought her beautiful Grandchildren to her fitting and has given permission for the photograph.
Walking home alone in the quiet of the early evening, I spotted this small Bluebell plant clinging to the Cornish hedge along West End, proper English Bluebells, none of the Spanish usurpers!
So much has come together about the production today that I feel at peace with it all. Thank you to the production team especially Shazz and Mia. You are a pair of stars!
