Phil’s first acting job after training at Webber Douglas was to play the back legs of the Donkey in ‘Puss in Boots’ at Leatherhead. His subsequent career ranged from touring Shakespeare worldwide with Michael Redgrave, then with The London Shakespeare Group for the British Council, to seasons at Regent’s Park and playing Hamlet for Michael Bogdanov at the Old Vic.
Sue’s acting career spans appearing in Dr Who to playing Shakespeare in heritage sites. As a Director she ran the W.11 Children’s Opera, taught at Hounslow Borough College, worked as Staff Producer at the Royal Opera House and with Michael Bogdanov as his Assistant Director for the English Shakespeare Company, where she met Phil. Together they formed the Charity Shakespeare Link, engaging with Shakespeare’s words and vision not only through teaching and performing but as a medium for communication and debate.
Now based in mid Wales Shakespeare Link continues to explore the plays whilst hosting an eclectic mix of theatre, workshops, music and community events at its flagship Willow Globe Theatre.
