Leaving Kilkenny...onto Cambridge
Before leaving Kilkenny, the lovely Roisin McQuillan invited me for a tour of Rothe House https://twitter.com/rothehouse
Rothe was a 17th century merchant and the house was built between 1594-1610 - and as Shrew is thought to have been written between 1590 and 1594, it seemed a timely visit. Roisin also showed me the gardens and orchard which they are re-establishing with plants of the period.
We also visited the luminarium for a little Shrew downtime... architects-of-air
And Leah and I were visited by our good friend and 'Earthquakes in London' stage manager Catherine Buffrey who is currently working in Dublin...
From Ireland to Cambridge, and six shows in four days in the beautiful gardens of the Master's House of Corpus Christi...where we just about avoided the worst of the rain...
