2 1/2 Stars: In Thiessen’s admittedly “fast and loose” version of events, Mr. and Mrs. Shakespeare have a very special marriage. He’s a bisexual, leaning toward gay on the Kinsey scale. She doesn’t mind; she wants to continue bedding as many men as possible.
“…a work of imaginative breadth that touches on the essence of life: sex and death, and everything in between. Poetic and speculative with little grounding in historical fact, the play puts imaginative flesh on a biographical skeleton, for we know far less about Anne than we do about her famous, wordsmith husband.”
