Words from Ian McKellen

My one and only attempt at acting in another language was directed by our French and form teacher Ken Haigh, another member of staff who was keen on theatre. As usual at Hopefield, the one-acter was part of a programme of other short plays and extracts from longer ones. On another occasion, more precocious boys acted in a Latin piece, beyond my ability.
