Ian was in Carterton raising money to rebuild the Royal Theatre in Christchurch. We were not far behind because we love a chance to talk Shakespeare with a legend. A group of 10 of us headed out to see him on Sunday, sitting in the front row.
The highlights were many, but when we all had a chance to join him on stage, we thought all our dreams had come true! He was superb onstage, humble offstage, and incredibly generous with his time with us.
We had a blast, and gained a new appreciation for a legend of Stage and Screen.
