"Fascinating account of Shakespeare in lust." - Telegraph, 4* (UK)

Patron? Collaborator? Employer? Voyeur? Lover?

Questioned about the nature of his relationship with the 3rd Earl of Southampton, William Shakespeare is on trial.

The evidence: tender poems, financial dependency, attempted revolution.

A compelling new drama set in Elizabethan England - a powder keg of sex, politics and power.
