Shakespeare’s last will and testament is read and frequently interrupted – much to the chagrin of the presiding attorney - by a host of characters: his family, his neighbours, the characters from his plays, his London actor friends.
The text knits together many Shakespearean quotes and speeches - ( people love to spot them!) There are songs from the plays, a sword fight, family revelations, contemporary events, and much more....
