When Shakespeare died, he famously left his wife Anne only one thing - the second best bed
When Shakespeare died, he famously left his wife Anne only one thing - the second best bed. This superb one-woman play, full of both humour and pathos, has received critical acclaim since its premier at the Swan theatre Worcester in 2012. Liz Grand stars as Anne Hathaway on the night of Shakespeare's funeral. The wake has finished, the mourners have all gone home ,leaving Anne to remember her life with the most talented playwright the world had ever seen. Or is he? Did he write the plays? His widow would know if anybody did. Wouldn't she?
