Description - Dear Mr Shakespeare... by Simon Reade

What if Shakespeare was writing today? What if Shakespeare had to deal with the prejudices of today's producers? What if he had to circumnavigate the same rapids of bureaucracy, financial constraints, cuts in funding, political correctness, forced re-writes, miscasting, rejections, put-downs and "friendly advice" that the writers of today encounter? Taking today's attitudes and playing them out in a series of fictional letters to the emerging Elizabethan playwright, Simon Reade has produced a sharp and novel companion to Shakespeare, for aficionados, actors, academics and audiences alike.
