Willow Globe

, Sat 8 Jun 2019, £6-£30

Llandrindod Wells,


The magic of the Willow Globe can sometimes over-shadow where it all started and what drives it- Shakespeare Link, which is now in its 25th year!

Our Artistic Directors Sue & Phil are passionate about Shakespeare as a tool for creating links with all people- regardless of age, gender, class, ethnic origin, religion or level of education. Shakespeare connects us all. They have used this as the foundation of their work all over the globe for quarter of a century- with amazing results.

This day long programme of talks, discussions, performance and workshops welcomes ALL COMERS to connect and explore the human condition through Shakespeare. It doesn’t matter if you have never experienced Shakespeare before or you consider yourself an expert- the richer the mix the better!

10:30-1:30 Workshops and discussions exploring how we can use Shakespeare to discover ourselves and connect with other people, with Ian Yeoman, Kama Roberts and Shakespeare Link. This workshop is free when you buy a ticket for the afternoon presentation.

2:30-5:30pm Gwyn Daniel in conversation with Gill Gorell Barnes. Family therapist and author Gwyn Daniel will share some themes from her book Family Dramas illustrated with a selection of compelling family scenes, performed by Willow Globe actors.

Gwyn Daniel is a systemic psychotherapist and trainer at the Tavistock Clinic who has experience of working in both children's services and in adult mental health. She has run workshops on this topic in many different locations within the UK as well as in Ireland, Italy, Slovenia, Palestine, India and Australia. As well as her new book on Family Dramas in Shakespeare She is co-author (with Bernadette Wren) of ‘Narrative therapy with families where a parent has a mental health problem’ in Vetere and Dowling (eds) and ‘Narrative work with children and their families’, Brunner- Routledge 2005.

Gwyn will be joined by a great friend of Shakespeare Link and the Willow Globe Gill Gorell Barnes- one of the UK’s leading child and family social workers and therapists.
