When Shakespeare died, he famously left his wife Anne just one item – their second best bed. This superb play by Avril Rowlands is full of both humour and pathos, and has received great critical acclaim since its premier at the Swan Theatre Worcester in 2012. Liz Grand stars as Anne Hathaway on the night of Shakespeare’s funeral.
The wake has finished, the mourners gone… Anne is left alone to remember her life with the most talented playwright the world has ever seen. Or was he? Did he write those plays? His widow would know if anybody did. Wouldn’t she?
‘Lifts the lid on a Tudor can of worms… a showcase for the towering acting skills of Liz Grand.’
