As Becky takes a break during her final performance on stage at the Royal Shakespeare Theatre, she reflects on the experience and prepares to bid an emotional farewell to Stratford.

Becky is performing in Henry VI: Rebellion as part of the Nottingham Theatre Royal Shakespeare Nation group. A mum to two young daughters, mildly obsessed with castles and medieval England, Becky runs a family business in Nottingham with her sister. She recently completed a two-year Exec MBA, which taught her to push more out of her comfort zone to maximise her experience of life, and so she applied to be a rebel.

In the picture below, you can see Becky in action on the far left of the image. Watch the video to see how she feels during her final performance at the Royal Shakespeare Theatre and what it means to her to have been part of the show.

Shakespeare Nation and the Rebels

Seventy-four adults from Blackpool, Bradford, Canterbury, Cornwall, Norwich and Nottingham, appear alongside the professional cast in our show Henry VI: Rebellion. They are part of Shakespeare Nation, our community participation programme run with our partner theatres, aimed at people with little or no experience of Shakespeare, either as a theatre-goer or performer. They play the roles of working people who take part in the rebellion led by the character of Jack Cade against Henry VI, and townsfolk when the king is out hunting.

The Shakespeare Nation adult engagement work is generously supported by the Esmée Fairbairn Foundation.
