Shakespeare's Will

Vern Thiessen

A historical play by Canadian writer Vern Thiessen, touching on the little know life of William Shakespeare's wife, Anne Hathaway.

Performed by Sally Hyde Lomax, the play starts immediately after Will's funeral. Anne has been handed Shakespeare's last will and testament by one of her least favourite people, his sister Joan. She initially ignores the will itself and instead spends an hour reminiscing about her life with, or as it turns out, largely without, Will. 

After an hour, she finally reads the will and finds some unexpected surprises.

The play has been warmly welcomed in over twenty venues, with excellent reviews. It is a lively, poignant and fun piece with never a dull moment.

'I can thoroughly recommend this one woman show which showcases Sally Hyde Lomax's talents. I took my two daughters aged 17 and 20 who also loved it.'

'A fantastic show, Sally brings not only Anne to life, but a whole array of characters within the story. I look forward to seeing it again and highly recommend it!'

'Wow a fabulous and powerful performance from Sally Hyde Lomax in Shakespeare's Will. Over an hour on stage on her tod and held us enthralled. Well done!'

'Splendid and captivating'
