What advice would you give to someone performing for the first time?
It’s a fantastic opportunity, and you never know who might be sitting in that audience – the author’s grandmother or Steven Spielberg. It’s the most diverse crowd in the world

What’s your first memory of the Festival?
My first festival was also my first job ever, so I remember quaking. I was playing the front end of a horse in Büchner’s Woyzeck.
