Author Biography - Michael Pennington

Michael Pennington is one of the UK's leading Shakespearean actors and directors. He is the author of three guides to performing Shakespeare. He has recently toured the country extensively with his one-man show, 'Sweet William'. Praise for the author's one-man show of the same name, which was rapturously received on tour in the UK, in the US and in the West End (February 2008): 'Pennington's ideas - original and refreshing - are gracefully plaited to the little we know of Shakespeare's life.' Observer 'What a superb and constantly stimulating guide Pennington proves... warm, wise and illuminating.' Daily Telegraph 'Michael Pennington is steeped in Shakespearean knowledge, and he shares it with you with the modest generosity of a drinking partner'. John Peter, Sunday Times
