He's a kid, a dreamer, a writer!

She's older, headstrong, brave enough for two.
Now he's dead, and you get to learn the truth . . . the story of marriage to Wm. Shakespeare.

Told by Anne Hathaway, in today's English, by Canadian playwright Vern Thiessen.

"Well known in Ottawa as a director, I'd like to see more of Crowder as an actor as well." -Brian Carroll, Apt613 Theatre Review "King Lear at The Gladstone"
