Not only are Ben Willbond and Laurence Rickard the brains behind the new British comedy Bill – depicting the lost years of William Shakespeare, but they take starring roles too, as part of the comedy troupe that, between them, share over 40 roles in this hilarious production.

We had the pleasure of sitting down with the pair to discuss the project, how they go about allocating roles, what’s next for them – and why Shakespeare.

Bill is released on September 18th. You can watch our interview with other cast members Jim Howick, Simon Farnaby and Martha Howe-Douglas here.
