Mister Shakespeare

Mister Shakespeare

Its 1606. William Shakespeare is isolated in his rooms to avoid contagion,. A suspicious Scottish King shaken by the recent gun-powder plot, sees plotters every-where.Meanwhile, Mister Shakespeare is trying to cope.
Actors shout for new roles; his brother whines for help, his wife wants her marriage back; his lover wants …love. Ghostly voices to endure, and those incessant church bells. Despite the clamour, he is inspired to write at least 3 of the master-pieces we know today, King Lear, Antony and Cleopatra and Macbeth.
In this new play by Michael Barry, brought to you by the team who created ‘The Eva Cassidy Story’, we explore Shakespeare The Man, The Father, The Actor, and the entrepreneur a very human Bard: ambitious, troubled, trying to make sense from the chaos around him: creating in confinement.
