Words from Ian McKellen

This was an odd choice for my directing debut but I enjoyed helping more junior boys share my enthusiasm for Shakespeare. I'd first seen 'Macbeth' as a child at Wigan Little Theatre and later with Laurence Olivier at the Memorial Theatre at Stratford-upon-Avon. Ian McKellen, December 2006
