FEATURES / CONTAINS

Bare Stage/Simple Set

William Shakespeare has become such an icon, we sometimes forget he was a human being...What was this man like as a teenager? Well, in this play, young Will Shakespeare is a robust, passionate and active man, who uses his intelligence and a knack for words to entertain the townspeople, soothe his scared sister, help his friend get a date, and woo an older woman - Anne Hathaway. We watch as he matures from a prankster to an aspiring artist setting out for the London stage. We see the humor and the gritty reality that undoubtedly shaped Shakespeare's mind and meet a few people who inspired such characters as Falstaff and Ophelia. Children will thrill to the play's excitement and action; adults will recognize famous quotes; and everyone gets an introduction to the Bard's era and language.
"Atkins paints a portrait of Will as a sensitive lad with a glib tongue, a curious mind, a wonder of life, a love of nature and, above all, a passion for words...If you have any children, take them." - Drama-Logue

"Like a relative fondly turning the pages of a family scrapbook, William of Stratford gives audiences a lovingly embellished glimpse into the life of young William Shakespeare." - The Los Angeles Times
