Continuing our thread of actors we love, talking about plays they love...
Here's Pitlochry Festival Theatre Ensemble's Matthew Hinchliffe on connecting with Shakespeare's Coriolanus.
Like us, Pitlochry Festival Theatre started their online series #PFTLightHopeJoy at the start of lockdown. It was created to bring light, hope and joy to the people of Scotland and beyond.
'Like keeping ourselves nourished with 3 meals a day, #PFTLightHopeJoy posts 3 times a day to keep the soul nourished. PFT is delighted to have been asked to partner with Perth Theatre on Actor's Choice. The PFT Summer Ensemble 2020 loved the opportunity!'
Here is Matthew introducing Shakespeare's tragedy:
