Two of the country’s leading Shakespearean actors, Pippa Nixon and Alex Waldmann will be visiting York St John University on 1st November 2017. Pippa and Alex are cultural fellows here at YSJU and will be in conversation about their work with our Shakespeare: Perspectives tutors.
Currently, Alex is playing Brutus in the Royal Shakespeare Company (RSC) production of Julius Caesar, which will transfer from Stratford-Upon-Avon to the Barbican in November.
Pippa and Alex worked together on the RSC’s 2013 production of As You Like It. They played Rosalind and Orlando. In same season they played Ophelia and Horatio in Hamlet, and Alex played Bertram in All’s Well That End’s Well.
In the previous season, they starred in Maria Aberg’s seminal production of King John. More recently, Pippa played Ariel in the Sam Wannamaker Playhouse production of The Tempest and Alex was Henry VI in Trevor Nunn’s revival of the Wars at the Roses at the Rose Theatre in Kingston.
