Shakespeare’s Will, by Vern Thiessen
Carpooling is highly recommended and appreciated
Tannis Kowalchuk performs the role of Anne Hathaway in a lively song-filled solo performance about the life of Anne Hathaway, the wife of William Shakespeare. The play begins on the afternoon of Shakespeare’s funeral. Anne knows she must read her husband’s will, but before she does, the widow relives her life as mother, wife, and woman in 17th century Stratford-Upon-Avon. Basing the narrative upon the little information known about the Bard’s wife, award-winning Canadian playwright, Vern Thiessen has written a sensitive and humorous text in verse, taking great delight imagining and inventing the robust, earthy, and intelligent character of Anne Hathaway. Kowalchuk moves from character to character and from decade to decade in an hour-long performance using song, inventive use of simple props and humorous story telling. Directed by Mimi McGurl with music by Kurt Knuth and costumes by Karen Flood.
The NACL production of Shakespeare’s Will has been performed at NACL Theatre, the Tusten Theatre in Narrowsburg, NY, Pontine Theatre in Portsmouth NH, the Cooperage in Honesdale, PA, and Spring Island, South Carolina
