MARY JANE HAS FINISHED THE THIRD PLAY IN HER SHAKESPEARE TRILOGY. The second draft of the third play in Mary Jane’s Shakespeare trilogy has been given a reading at the Theater Artists Workwhop in Norwalk. There were major changes between the first draft and the second draft. She thinks there will be only minor tinkering going forward.
This third play explores Shakespeare’s relationship with the Earl of Southampton, his patron and the man who was quite possibly the youth about whom Shakespeare wrote some of his most famous sonnets. The play is grounded on historical events.
