‘A superbly original interpretation and telling of Shakespeare’s sonnets.’
‘Atmospheric music and thoughtful delivery of the sonnets with the helpful added explanations after each one.’

Eddy is an actor who has performed at The Bristol Old Vic and the Ustinov Theatre. His latest performance was in Queen Margaret by Jeanie O’Hare with the Downpour Theatre Company.
