Dominic Dromgoole’s Will & Me

“Will & Me” by Dominic Dromgoole

Finished reading Will & Me: How Shakespeare Took Over My Life by Dominic Dromgoole, Artistic Director for the Globe Theatre. This was a perfect companion read to Susan Hill’s lovely Shakespeare Country.

A charming memoir of Dromgoole’s life experiences from childhood, school days, college theatre and on into the present, and how Shakespeare and his plays seemed to intersect and enlighten these experiences.  The last section is an account of a seven-day walk Dromgoole and a friend, armed with a copy of the Complete Works, undertook that started from Shakespeare’s graveside at Holy Trinity Church, Stratford-upon-Avon and ended at the Globe Theatre in Southwark, London.

Since so little is known about the Bard’s life, Dromgoole has shared his own life and in the process has brought Shakespeare a little closer and made his plays a little more personal for all of us.
