To W H

Synopsis:
Romeo loved Juliet. Anthony loved Cleopatra. Shakespeare loved Willy. William Shakespeare (actor, director, playwright, poet, genius) has booked a theatre venue in South London to finally come clean about the mysterious WH of the sonnets. He hasn't banked on the fact that WH, keen for a piece of the limelight, has also turned up, eager to tell his side of the story. Will's got the whole evening mapped out: a few readings from the sonnets, some extracts from his most famous plays, and a nice and cosy question and answer session. Couldn't be easier. WH, however, is intent on 'outing' Shakespeare as a lazy, drunk, arrogant libertine. Funny and poignant, To WH takes the audience through Shakespeare's life, from his first ill-fated meeting with WH, to his death in Stratford. Punctuated by blues-style renditions of the sonnets from the Dark Lady herself, To WH finally bangs the nail into the coffin of Shakespeare's heterosexuality.
