The Minack Theatre perched on the cliffs high above the Atlantic ocean. A breathtaking sight revealed itself to me. It is difficult to put this into words, the most wonderful place I can imagine for Shakespeare plays. Pure magic, I felt at home for a moment ... happy and grateful and I remembered my time as an occasional actress, starting with Romeo and Juliet when I was 13.
