Today is the anniversary of the Shakespeare in Oxford project. It was hard work for Polly and I raising the money, bringing together the young people and organising the three days of workshops and filming but these young people are amazing don’t you think – so thoughtful? (See video link below the pics) The scene where Joe and Zara fall in love- they are acting in West Side Story! This concerns Polly’s re-imagining of Romeo and Juliet . Eve Ahmed movingly reflected on the authenticity of it. Given the turbulence of our world in 2019 we need to ‘only connect’ even more !

In Sculpting the Elephant , Harry and Ramma face obstacles but not life and death ones as in Joe and Zara.
