Description

Full Length Play

Comedy

The play takes place between the late 1580s and 1616, in Stratford Upon Avon and London. Following Shakespeare’s funeral, Anne is left alone with her memories of their life together and a document signed by Will attesting that she was the true author! Through a series of flashbacks, there are glimpses of key moments in their love/hate relationship - their first meeting; Will’s failure as a playwright in London; Anne’s proposal that he pretend he wrote her plays (in those times educated women were regarded as witches); the overwhelming success of their deception; Anne’s growing envy for Will’s ‘success’ which should be hers; and finally, Will’s death.
