What occurred to the true William Shakespeare in his twenties? How did a country lad disappear from historic documents in 1585 and burst into view on London’s degree 8 years later remodeled right into a playwright subtle within the complexities of political, social and romantic intrigue?
This wildly inventive yarn with a robust old style follows younger Will on tantalizing and comedic adventures with spies and students, a plot to kill a queen, treachery in international lands, poetic interludes, battles at sea, encounters with nice minds, and the carnal, bloody and unnatural acts Horatio later speaks of in “Hamlet.”
In pursuing their mystery tasks, William and his mentor, Malachi, alternate quips and fees with a variety of their contemporaries from Marlowe to Montaigne, Spenser to Cervantes. Their lively and funny exchanges from the again alleys and battlefronts usually preview traces we'll listen later within the paintings of the mature Shakespeare.
One reviewer reviews: "What a roller-coaster....spies, intrigue, torture, duels, queens, cannons, struggling with sail & romance...but above all....HUMOR (prepare to be amused)...history because it can have (might have?) must have been!"
Blend the brash exuberance of “Shakespeare in Love” with the clever innocence of “Forrest Gump” and you’ll simply realize irreverent younger William as you subscribe to our avid gamers in a scene already in progress...
