The papers are carrying obituaries for one of my favourite actors, today.
PAUL SCHOFIELD'S OBITUARY HERE
I remember seeing him at Macbeth in Stratford in 1967. We used to be taken there in coach loads from my school in North Wales; I was very lucky. The obituary says the Peter Hall production was disappointing... I don't remember that... just being mesmerised by the play, the actors.
No, they weren't actors, they were Macbeth and Lady Macbeth, Duncan and Banquo's ghost...and suddenly these dry old pages we'd been ploughing through in lessons dissolved into a story that wouldn't let me put it down.
