Kenneth Branagh Theatre Company at the Garrick Theatre in London's West End started off with Shakespeare's The Winter's Tale with both the actor manager himself and Judi Dench in the cast.
– I have had a thirty year creative relationship with Judi Dench. She is a remarkable performer, says Branagh about his long time actor friend.
The Winter's tale has reached an even bigger audience in cinemas and there is more Shakespeare to come from the company. This summer Branagh will direct Romeo and Juliet with Derek Jacobi as Mercutio.
The company is staging five more plays, ending the season with John Osborne's The Entertainer with Kenneth Branagh as Archie Rice.
Kerstin Berggren met Kenneth Branagh at The Garrick Theatre and in this 49:th episode of Spotlight they talk about Shakespeare, The Winter's Tale, the company and of course about Kurt Wallander.
