A St Albans am-dram actor is taking to the stage with the same role he took on 22 years ago.
David Martin will play Gonzalo in this year's outdoor Shakespeare production by Breakaway Theatre Company, The Tempest.
The 66-year-old, who has been with the company for 32 years, last played the honourable advisor to Alonso, King of Naples in 1997 when the show was performed at the St Albans School amphitheatre.
This year's production has a modern twist - it is set in space with aliens, lightsabers, and cosmic magic.
David said: "The greatest fun comes from the people in the production - director, cast and crew all working together towards a common short term goal - to put on the best show we can for our audience.
