Irish Halloween Bread! Barmbrack

All The World’s a Stage

By , October 19, 2019

Another season, another play. I’m acting in another community theater offering this autumn, with the added bonus that I actually get to quote Shakespeare’s “All the world’s a stage” passage from his play, As You Like It.

Two friends and I will present The Complete Works of William Shakespeare (Abridged) by Adam Long, Daniel Singer, and Jess Winfield November 1st through 3rd in Haines.
