Playing Shakespeare – Donald Sinden

Donald Sinden’s recent death, at the age of 90, has encouraged me to dig out some of his many performances from film and television.

Whilst well known as a comic actor, he was no stranger to the classics, as seen (with other greats of the British stage) in this edition of Playing Shakespeare.

From amongst the numerous tributes paid to Sinden over the last week, there’s a lovely one from Michael Billngton here.
