From a totally sold-out run last season in New York, Amy Freed's jocular comedy The Beard of Avon explores the "who-wrote-Shakespeare's-plays debate" -- one of Shakespeare's more learned contemporaries? An earl? A scholar? Another playwright entirely? You don't have to be a Shakespeare aficionado to appreciate the fun in the comedy about the authorship of 37 plays, whoever is responsible! The New England premier stars TV and stage regular Juliet Mills and is directed by Russell Treyz.
