The DVD of my solo Shakespeare show, SWEET WILLIAM, is now available. It goes under the title of SWEET WILLIAM - MY LIFE WITH SHAKESPEARE. It's the entire performance, filmed with a live audience at LAMDA about a year ago with three cameras, and we've been editing it ever since. 

At last I'm happy (I've produced as well as playing it); and now the stock's arrived. At the moment it's available from the National Theatre Bookshop for £12.99, and in a few days will also be through the RSC - certainly in their Bookshop and soon afterwards on line I think. Same price. We're beginning to sort out some more outlets, 

including Amazon, but I have to work out how to do that so it may take another few weeks. But as I say the early copies are at the NT and RSC.

All the best and thanks for your interest !
