English-born son of Scottish parents was preceded by 5 sisters and followed by a brother in Rawtenstall, Lancashire on the gentle eastern slopes of the Pennines. But that’s not important right now. What is important is that after living in England, the United States and the Netherlands, and becoming the Shakespeare expert by memorising all sonnets of the great playwright, William was the first native English-speaking comedian in the Netherlands in 1995.
His continued love of Shakespeare’s work and time leads him to further and further study. Questions beget questions. William is currently inundated with unread books on the course of Western theatre history and literature. When overwhelmed, he juggles and recites sonnets to the rhythm of plops and thuds.
