About this show

Loosely based on the few historical facts known about the Bard, Anne, and their family life, Shakespeare's Will is a lively, humorous, and emotional depiction of Anne Hathaway — accidental mother, proudly imperfect wife, and defiantly liberated woman in Elizabethan England. The play begins on the afternoon of Shakespeare's funeral. Anne knows she must read her husband's will, but before she does, the unreserved widow relives her colorful and unorthodox life. NACL Theatre presents this New York City premiere by award-winning Canadian playwright Vern Thiessen, whose acclaimed play Of Human Bondage premiered at Signature Theatre in a Soulpepper production in 2017.
