The small display Shakespeare: Greatest Living Playwright is on in the Theatre & Performance area at the Victoria & Albert Museum until the 28th of September. It celebrates the 450th anniversary of Shakespeare’s birth, and consists of artefacts such as a copy of the First Folio and videos of several theatre practitioners currently involved with Shakespeare. These include Sinead Cusack, Cush Jumbo and Simon Russell Beale, and I really enjoyed hearing about their experiences, especially Cusack, as she played Cleopatra in the first ever RSC production I saw back in 2002.
