1976 - BCS sponsoring the arts

Sir Michael Redgrave became the BCS’s first venture into sponsoring the arts; he played “Shakespeare’s People” to packed audiences at the Teatro João Caetano on both nights.

“Though poorly staged, with Sir Michael somewhat diminished in power, that particular quality of pathos that has always characterised his acting struck one to the heart.”
