ACTORS from the Globe Theatre heading to the Calais refugee camp have been asked if they could just send food instead.
As the Shakespearean troupe prepare their tights and make-up, their audience stressed that a timeless classic of revenge and regret is not as useful as a jar of peanut butter or a Pepperami.
Actor Nikki Hollis said: “I just hope the nuance I bring to the role of Ophelia won’t be drowned out by all their teeth chattering.”
Director Tom Logan said: “It promises to be as big a success as the production of Troilus & Cressida I did in Kabul in 2009 from inside an Apache helicopter on a bombing run.”
Hollis added: “It’s great to be able to bring a little joy into somebody’s life by letting them watch me dress up and play pretend. They’re so lucky.”
