Bard & Company.
The Bard & Company is a multi-authored book project from 26. Conveniently enough, there were 26 players in Shakespeare’s company, so that magic number of writers were assigned a play and a player, and asked to explore ways in which the Bard can bring lessons to modern business life.
Jim helped edit the book with John Simmons and Rob Williams. And also contributed the finale, a chapter which features all 26 of the players – it’s a darkly comic tale of vaulting ambition and skulduggery on the Welcombe Hills outside Stratford, and was inspired by a real-life RSC publicity stunt which used a flotilla of hot-air balloons to pump ambient music and Shakespeare readings over the rooftops of Stratford.
