“If I had my life again, I would choose no other course” John Bell

Spend an evening with John Bell, a man who believed that Australians could see themselves reflected in the works of Shakespeare and founded a company based on his belief.

This fascinating backstage pass to John Bell’s life and his relationship with Shakespeare will be a beautiful evening of performance and recollection.
