“Lord, what fools these mortals be!” Midsummer Night’s Dream by the man himself!
A few years ago I saw MND in a beautiful outdoor theatre. The man playing Bottom had an animatronic donkey’s head. Long dainty ears that flexed and eyes the blinked and moved. Wonderful! I think he was Russian but learnt English through studying Shakespeare. I can’t help but think that was a bit of baptism by fire.
