5/5 stars from 1 user.WRITE A REVIEW



Shakespeares Slave is an ingenious, and ingeniously funny, story. It brilliantly weaves together a rich tapestry of historical, theatrical, and romantic themes, complete with swashbuckling sword-fights and bawdy bedroom scenes, while a thought-provoking twist gives this wonderfully inventive dark comedy a unique angle. The superb cast is terrific in a crackling production, with David L. Townsend at the center of it all delivering a nimble, witty, and immensely enjoyable performance as the beleaguered Bard. If you liked Shakespeare in Love, youll love Shakespeares Slave.
