Betty Winbolt

It is with sadness that we have learnt that Betty Winbolt has died at the age of 94. Betty was the founder member of BSP and together with her husband Ted ran the company until 1993. Betty directed the first fifteen of our Shakespeare productions and was instrumental in the setting up of the company. She encouraged many actors to take to the stage and without her hard work and dedication there would be no BSP today.

Summer 2019

We are very pleased to announce that Leo Smith and Jon-Michael Lindsey will be directing a double bill of Shakespeare’s comedy and John Flecher’s “sequel”.
