Lavatch played by Colin Hurley
All's Well That Ends Well (2011)
Written by: William Shakespeare
Globe favourite Colin Hurley took on the comic fool Lavatch in the 2011 season's Alls Well That Ends Well.
Colin talks about performing Lavatch at the Globe; how he's playing the comedy and how the audience are reacting to his bitter fool.
Colin talks about the final phase of rehearsal: tech week. He talks about the staging, the music, his costume, and the little drum he has become so attached to.
Colin talks about getting to grips with his character's use of prose rather than verse and he also reveals a background in stand up comedy and how this is now informing his decisions on Lavatch's humour.
In this second interview Colin describes how his character has developed so far in rehearsal and Lavatch's important relationships with the Countess, Parolles and also the Globe audience.
An Introduction to Colin Hurley and his character Lavatch - Colin reminisces on his first experience of Shakespeare at school and what he has now discovered about the early modern fool.
