Canadian playwright Vern Thiessen gives a voice to one of the most silent characters in history: Anne Hathaway, the wife of William Shakespeare.
The play sheds light on unexplored aspects of Hathaway’s life by looking through the eyes and heart of the woman who spent a lifetime with—and without—the great poet. This work is the celebration of a life unbowed by tragedy and unapologetic in the face of public scorn.
