Actress Naomi Frederick on The Heresy of Love at Shakespeare’s Globe
26th August 2015
INTERVIEW: NAOMI FREDERICK. The actress, currently starring as Sor Juana Inés de la Cruz – Mexico’s celebrated 17th-century playwright – in Helen Edmundson’s The Heresy of Love at Shakespeare’s Globe talks to Judi Herman about playing the role in its first, swift revival since the 2012 RSC premiere.
“Helen Edmundson was anxious how the play would fare, because it’s a fragile delicate piece, because the flavour is so dictated by this female protagonist, but it is an epic story and she is a big character. The story is a big one and the history is large too, so it does fill the space.”
