Masterclass: Adaptation – Bryn Holding

What do we lose and what do we gain? Should we adapt? Once the door is open where do you draw the line? Bryn Holding shares some thoughts from an adaptation of King John he directed at Theatre Royal Bath.

“Death.
             My Lord?
                              A grave.
                                             He shall not live.
                                                                        Enough.”
