Much is known of Shakespeare’s complete works, but what of William Shakespeare the man?
This brand new play from the producers of The Eva Cassidy Story and A Viennese Strauss Gala, explores William; the son, the father, the husband, the actor and successful entrepreneur.
With London theatres closing, Shakespeare confines himself to his Southwark lodgings and there he directs his attention to work on what were to become some of his finest works; King Lear, Antony and Cleopatra and Macbeth. Voices from his childhood, the actors he works with, his contemporaries Ben Johnson and Christopher Marlowe, and guilt he feels about his family, disturb his waking and sleeping hours.
Mister Shakespeare examines how the events of the time influenced the direction and content of many of his plays.
