Words from Ian McKellen
Miranda Marshall (Lillian Howes) joined us for this production "she read fortunes from palms and waiting for our entrance behind the flats of the scenery, she forecast that I was going to be a very successful actor one day. I didn't believe her, partly because my only ambition was to become as good an actor as possible. I wasn't looking much beyond my apprenticeship at the Belgrade Theatre.
