“Robert, you are really at the top of your game. Hamlet was a wonderful and memorable experience. It was so fresh and so vivid. Scott knocked it out of the ballpark. What a special gift it is when someone invests so much to inhabit the character.

“Your choices made it work so well. It is the type of thing that glows inside you for days afterwards and makes you reread parts of the play again. Guys grave side poem was a spellbinding highlight for me. And what a life changing experience for Jordy.

“It was a fantastic team effort by cast and crew, made possible by the expertise you have accrued over a lifetime dedicated commitment.

“Thanks mate, all the best. Ian.”
