September 6, 2019, 7:30 PM - September 12, 2019, 9:00 PM @ LOST NATION THEATER
A masterful, humorous solo show, in which the Bard’s Wife gets the last word by Canadian Playwright Vern Thiessen. Lost Nation Theater is excited to presents the play’s Northeast premiere, directed by Eric Love and starring Margo Whitcomb. Inspired by the few historical facts known about The Bard, his wife Anne, and their family, Shakespeare’s Will is a lively, humorous and emotional depiction of Anne Hathaway – accidental mother, proudly imperfect wife, and defiantly liberated woman in Elizabethan England.
He was the most famous man in literary history. She was cloaked in silence and invisibility. Now... thanks to Vern Thiessen’s marvelous play, Madame Shakespeare is having her say!
