England, 1585. A young Will Shakespeare is living in the peaceful town of Stratford-upon-Avon in the heart of England with his newly-wed wife, Anne. However, something’s missing. He’s dreaming of prophecies, rough magic and words that none, other than he, is able to find. As he starts to follow these dreams, life takes him on a journey from gentle nights in high castles to bawdy brawls in country taverns. Using poetry, music and improvised dance, our play tells the story of how Will became William Shakespeare in a physical, fresh and poignant way.
