"Shakespeare in Cuba" began when Sarah Finch directed a musical that visited Cuba in 2009. She was then invited to teach Shakespeare at the National Drama School in Havana. This became a biennial commitment, and Sarah is also working with the Cuban Government towards setting up a Shakespeare Centre. The festival includes performances of scenes from Shakespeare plays, lectures from Professor Paul Prescott of Warwick University, and Lions part members sharing their experience of playing Shakespeare.
