Flip from the forum, while browsing the RSC website, spotted that Joseph had signed up to the Stand Up for Shakespeare campaign (page 11).

I wholeheartedly support the Stand up for Shakespeare manifesto. My own education included next to no contact with this beautiful material and it was by luck that at 17 years old I was dragged kicking and screaming to take part in a.... more college production of Othello. My first experience of Shakespeare was 'on my feet' rehearsing a truncated version of the play and others around me complained it was 'boring'. I am guessing they had spent time behind desks 'studying' Shakespeare at school. I had not and had to keep quiet so as not to appear 'uncool' as this language immediately set my heart and mind on fire as we rehearsed the play. Good luck.
