“In this same interlude it doth befall
That I, one Changing Palette by name, present a wall.”
With apologies to Tom Snout the tinker and the Bard.
Yesterday was World Theatre Day.
All the world has now indeed become a stage. I know we all look forward to the day when theatres, galleries, concert halls, sports stadiums will all come to life again. In the meantime we must thank our dedicated health professionals, first responders, hospital employees; essential service providers of every kind be they in food, pharmacy, truck drivers, flight attendants, and so many countless others.
The time is out of joint; how fortunate we are that they were born to set it right!
A treasured gift, this rare 1748 edition of the works of Shakespeare,
