Be Inspired: Shakespeare and Me
Lisa Wolpe: Actress and director
While staying in Stratford-upon-Avon, Lisa Wolpe wrote:
'I find in Shakespeare a cartographer of the soul and the cosmos – a writer who can take me by the hand and pilot me towards extraordinary thoughts, fantastic places, and exotic new friendships. What a stretch of the mind and heart to perform, direct, and research these beautifully written stories! I’ve loved reading and writing about Shakespeare for over forty years, and have played dozens of characters, male and female. Here in Stratford there is such a rich history and panoply of aficionados – it makes the Bard all the more accessible!'
