When Shakespeare died, he famously left his wife Anne only one thing – the second best bed. This superb one-women play, full of humour and pathos, has received great critical acclaim since its premier at the Swan Theatre Worcester in 2012. Liz Grand (last seen at The Astor as Agatha Christie in ‘Where Is Mrs Christie’), stars as Anne Hathaway on the night of Shakespeares’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 has ever seen. Or was he? Did he write the plays? His widow would know if anybody did. Wouldn’t She?
