Mrs Shakespeare: Will’s first and last love
Saturday, April 27 @ 2:00 pm
A solo show (1 hr.) written, compiled and performed by YVONNE HUDSON:
Meet Anne Hathaway Shakespeare, story-telling from the family home in Stratford-Upon-Avon, circa 1600. With help from Will’s words, she shares her marriage and motherhood–a tale of unexpected courtship, resourceful parenting, and unrivaled resilience. The show casts a whole new perspective on the curious character of William Shakespeare who became the world’s most beloved writer.
The show introduces the mother of Shakespeare’s children and the woman who bravely waited for him for more than two decades while he built a career in London.
(Discussion will be held after the performance)
*Note: the 2:00 PM show has no admission, but freewill donations will benefit the Battle of Homestead Foundation.
