WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

Could Shakespeare's best-known comedy be a Jewish religious lampoon written by a woman? That's the basis for Midsummer Night's Dream: A Comic Jewish Satire. The Dark Lady Players are the first company in the world to put on a Shakespearean production using the Amelia Bassano Theory, which is based primarily on a recent academic discovery by John Hudson that Shakespeare's plays contain a Jewish religious allegory. The theory reveals they were written by Amelia Bassano Lanyer, who has never before been considered as a potential Authorship candidate. A black Jewish woman, educated by a countess from the age of seven, for at least a decade this "Dark Lady of the Sonnets" was mistress to the man in charge of the English Theater. She was the first woman in England to publish a book of poetry (in 1611), which included a long feminist epic poem criticizing the Gospels.
