Michael Pennington’s career has spanned more than 40 years and he is one of the leading classical actors of his generation. An Honorary Associate Artist of the Royal Shakespeare Company, he is the author of books on Hamlet, Twelfth Night, A Midsummer Night’s Dream, and a number of books on theatre, including his recently published autobiography, ‘In My Own Footsteps…’
Michael will read extracts from his autobiography, ‘In My Own Footsteps’ and talk with Sam Walters about the actor’s life and Shakespeare. Michael will sign copies of his autobiography afterwards.
Sam Walters is the founding Artistic Director of the Orange Tree Theatre in Richmond, a key figure in the English theatre over the last forty years, who now lives locally.
