About this show

The renowned actress Lynn Redgrave, who passed away just last year, made her first foray into playwriting in 1993 with Shakespeare for My Father. This autobiographical tale of Ms. Redgrave's memories has been crafted into a complex, funny, and moving portrait of a child's longing for the love of Sir Michael Redgrave - the inscrutable, daunting, and charismatic Shakespearean actor who was her father. Acclaimed in America and the UK, Shakespeare for My Father weaves scenes from the Bard that delightfully fuse with events in Ms. Redgrave's young life, eliciting memories of Sir Michael and engaging impressions of the celebrated stars who frequented the Redgrave's home and lives.
