Reaching the Stars up with the Stars at the RSC
Last weekend I was with some poet friends in Stratford Upon Avon. On Saturday evening we went to see Taming of the Shrew, with women in all the men’s roles. Not my favourite Shakespeare play, but transformed into THE best Shakespeare I’ve seen at the RSC or anywhere, do go and see it if you can! Revelatory, nuanced, hilarious.
Which made it all the more wonderful that Bernard Young spotted Reaching the Stars, Poems about Extraordinary Women and Girls, by me, Jan Dean and Michaela Morgan, in the RSC shop.
We are all thrilled.
