Written and performed by Nicholas Collett
Additional material by William Shakespeare
Directed by Gavin Robertson
Professor Nother is giving a talk about Shakespeare authorship in the function room at the Shakespeare pub – but he doesn’t believe the man from Stratford wrote those plays.
That’s Will’s cue to kick the door off the hinges and defend his reputation. Come and meet the man himself and take the lid off a legend in your local. He’ll tell you all about his family, what it’s like on tour and the glory days at the Globe. Queen Elizabeth I, Christopher Marlowe and Ned Alleyn – you’ll meet them too. Intermingled with a few of his greatest hits – and maybe a sonnet or a song.
There’s no fourth wall here – we’re all in this together!!
Ladies and gentlemen raise your glasses – Your Bard!
“The charismatic Collett commands the room in a truly intimate, funny and energetic performance that wraps us up in Shakespeare’s life and person” The Pitch, Kansas City
“Lively and engaging, full of humour and audience interaction” KC Metropolis
“On Collett’s stage, William Shakespeare has truly become “our” bard, the bard of the people and a bard among people – all thanks to our modern playwright’s at times comical, at times deep and moving, but always original and fond rendition of him.” Nouse Magazine
“Collett knows how to pack an emotional punch” York Press
