Shakespeare’s Will
By Vern Thiessen | Directed by Dawn McAndrews
Sponsored by Eaton Peabody, Co-Sponsored by Benjamin & Judy Bertram

Meet Anne Hathaway. Shakespeare’s wife, defiantly graceful, unsparingly brave, proudly imperfect. As Anne mourns her husband, avoiding reading his will, she unpacks their relationship before our eyes; revealing secrets and passions from the day they met, to the day he died. As the multiple layers of the play’s title are revealed, we are irreversibly immersed in Anne’s story: her sacrifices, her wisdom, her sexuality and, last but far from least, her ongoing efforts to remain faithful to herself. Shakespeare’s Will sheds light on unexplored aspects of Hathaway’s life by looking through the eyes and heart of the woman who spent a lifetime with, and without, the great poet. This work is the celebration of a life unbowed by tragedy and unapologetic in the face of public scorn.
