I like Shakespear. When we first did it at school (macbeth), i could of cried when i opened the book, cos i couldn't see how i would ever understand it, but my best essays were those i did on Macbeth.

I like Midsummer night's dream best.

He's one of my heroes. Twelfth Night is fab beetroot, I agree, also love Midsummer Nights Dream and Much Ado. And for a bit of drama you can't beat Othello. I'd love to play Desdemona, fab fab fab.

Are you directing it somewhere beetroot?

I've never read twelfth night, one of these things I have always meant to get round to

Did Malvolio dress up in yellow stockings and fancy garters and prance around for Olivia?

No bloke ever dressed up and danced for me.

b gI remember going to see As you like it, and hearing the line 'my affection hath an unknown bottom' my friend and I completely lost it, and nearly wet ourselves laughing. We'd calm down then one of us would snort softly and we'd collapse again.
I couldn't ever go and watch it again.

Did you see the film that was out a couple of years ago, Imogen Stubbs was Viola - I thought it was really good.
I love the scene where Sir Andrew and Cesario fight - v funny. Enjoy, beetroot!

Possibly, there has been another one. I did a semi professional twelfth night a few years ago, it was great fun, went down really well.

What fun, are you going to do it modern or traditonal?

{grin]. I saw Olivia played as such a sexpot once, it was marvellous. When she sees both twins and says "How wonderful" - it was pure sauce.
