It’s 1606 and Shakespeare (Michael Urie) is plagued…with writer’s block. London’s theatres are closed and the actual plague has the Bard stuck in quarantine with his “young” apprentice, Francis (Ryan Spahn). In through the window climbs Jane Anger (Amelia Workman), a Cunning Woman and a writer of her own merit with a dream to change history. As Jane tries to assist Shakespeare in writing King Lear, Jane and Anne Hathaway (of Stratford, not Hollywood, played by playwright Talene Monahon) take matters into their own more than capable hands. The New York Times raves, “The production has a liveliness that the exceptional cast runs away with, delivering Monahon’s mile-a-minute gags with zest.”
