February 14 Family History at Stratford

History for me in here is part of my family history. Mr P discussed being in Romeo and Juliet in Stratford. This was my mom's first (and maybe only) play she saw. I grew up thinking, believing, that Stratford was the best of the best. Kate Reid (the Nurse) and Mr P were like long lost relatives. I am glad he has been alive ling enough for not just me, but my children especially, to have seen him work his magic on stage. I wish I could take them all with me this summer. But, they have all seen him at a book signing. Dakota and Cordelia (of course) met him. Dakota saw him in The Tempest. Maybe one day his kids will tell the story - I wonder who their generations's Mr P will be?
