So, Trey has had it up to here with Shakespeare. Perhaps watching this video will change his mind.

Hilary Kacser invited us to a rehearsal of her Fringe offering Love & War: With the Bard’s Broads and Dames, and of course we said yes. Hilary was freshly back from London, where she was invited to present her last year’s Fringe show, In Pursuit of the English: Rose, at the Doris Lessing Conference. Tally-ho, eh?

The two-part play is directed by Jennifer Crooks, who is also filling in for an unavailable actor. Love & War also features Jordan Boughrum, Liesyl Franz, Jason B. McIntosh, and Mike Wong.
