Mrs Shakespeare: Will’s first & last love
Saturday, April 27 @ 7:00 pm
Sonnets, songs, and soliloquies–with references from some 20 plays–are woven into Yvonne Hudson’s imaginative script celebrating the triumphs and tragedies of the world’s most beloved playwright and his wife Anne. Developed through ongoing research including work in Stratford-Upon-Avon and London, Mrs Shakespeare is the longest-running solo project featuring the character of Anne Hathaway, a farmer’s daughter who married the man destined to inform the English language and theatre for the ages.
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.
Directed by Helen M. Meade
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 at 7 PM benefits Pittsburgh Shakespeare in the Parks, part of the annual Week of Will celebrating Shakespeare’s birthday.
