Bell Shakespeare Partnership
What a piece of work is man! How noble in reason! How infinite in faculty! In form and moving how express and admirable!
In action how like an angel! In apprehension how like a god! The beauty of the
world, the paragon of animals!
And yet, to me, what is this quintessence of dust? Man delights not me: no, nor
woman neither, though by your smiling you seem to say so.
– HAMLET TO ROSENCRANTZ AND GUILDENSTERN, ACT II, SCENE II
The work of Shakespeare never ceases to amaze and inspire and it strikes at the heart of what it is to be human – vulnerable, dangerous, and yet so capable of creating beauty.
Since 2015 we have been working with Bell Shakespeare to support the Writers Fellowship. This project provides a mid-career Writing Fellow with two days a week of employment with the Company for up to two years, giving them the time to focus wholly on their writing and benefit from desk-space and the practical resources offered within a major performing arts organisation. It also creates a mentoring environment as successive Fellows come on board over time.
