WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
A world premiere romantic comedy! Sexy Stratfordian Elizabeth Shakespeare says she is a descendant of the Bard, willing to kill to protect his name. But, with a simple key-stroke on his computer, the astute detective, an Oxfordian, can prove Shakespeare didn't write a single word of the plays and sonnets. Via his computer he conjures up The Bard and The Earl from their four centuries' demise. Finally, after 400 years, the truth is revealed. Who really wrote those "Shakespeare" plays? It's a duel of wits about wills and Wills (with a goodly amount of romance along the way). The eventual outcome will surprise, and delight Oxfordians, Stratfordians, and even those who don't know their Othello from their Pericles. Penned by noted playwright/novelist Abraham Alan Ross (Brodsky and the Bandit, The Lasso Man) and helmed by acclaimed director Chris DeCarlo (Dietrich & Chevalier, Love in Bloom, Clemensy for Mark Twain), this delightfully buoyant evening of theatre features stage and screen personalities Tony Perzow and Pia Pownall in the title roles, with the versatile James Schendel in a host of roles that includes, of course, William Shakespeare. Produced by Santa Monica Playhouse in conjunction with Andy Rodman and Bonnie Sanders.
