SHAKESPEARE RESTORED

This is a play that continues to grow and surprise me. I have written three versions of this play.


SHAKESPEARE RESTORED (large-cast)

Synopsis:

Alexander Pope and Lewis Theobald square off over how best to save Shakespeare's scripts. The scripts had become difficult to understand due to old printing techniques and changes in the language. In the meanwhile, Shakespeare's Richard II and Henry Bolingbroke struggle to see who will become King of England and Sophocles' Electra drops by as she awaits the return of her brother, Orestes.
