Samuel Taylor is co-founder & partner in the Back Room Shakespeare Project, which is Shakespeare in a style closer, probably, to the intent with which the plays were written: Serious Actors, No Director, One Rehearsal, In a Bar. He is author of the book: My Life With The Shakespeare Cult, which is about that kind of work.
Samuel is also owner & operator of Long Table Pancakes. Heritage grains, small batches, and local sourcing make for the best pancakes. Period.
