“In Acting Shakespeare” is a funny, touching and uplifting story of one man’s discovery of Shakespeare, acting and language.

Freely adapted, with permission, from Sir Ian McKellen’s ‘Acting Shakespeare’, the wonderfully talented James De Vita tells his own story of a young fisherman searching for a new career.

This fun, fervent tribute to one man’s personal journey, deftly weaves some of Shakespeare’s most famous monologues with James’ days as Long Island fisherman and his nights as a classical actor.

This is a show for anyone interested in Shakespeare or theatre.

‘In Acting Shakespeare’ will tour Ireland until October 24 opening in Limerick before coming to the city on Saturday night for one night only. For more information go to at www.shakespeareireland.com

“A good one-man show leaves the audience wanting more, which is exactly what happens.” -The Huffington Post

“Splendid…hysterically funny… Imaginatively written and performed with zest and honesty by the endearing, handsome DeVita” – Backstage
