On tour from the USA and direct from Off-Broadway comes the funny, touching and uplifting story of one man’s discovery of Shakespeare, acting and language. Freely adapted from Sir Ian McKellen’s ‘Acting Shakespeare’ James De Vita tells his own story of a young fisherman searching for a new career. This fun, fervent tribute to one man’s journey with history’s greatest poet deftly weaves Shakespeare’s life with reminiscences of James’ own days on a Long Island fishing boat (and nights as a classical actor).
