My first visit to the Shakespeare theatre was a school trip. Since then I have been to the town and theatre many times, but the most memorable visit was many years later when I was shown round backstage. My own experience of acting had been with small amateur groups, performing in church halls on inadequate stages. (And once in a men's prison, where I played the part of the murderer in Agatha Christie's The Hollow.) I was intrigued by the steep rake of Stratford's stage, and greatly admired those who could keep their feet while sword-fighting.
