My Second Best Bed
  • Edinburgh Fringe

Shakespeare's life, in Shakespeare's words... Conceived for the RSCs 2016 Dream Playmaking Festival and using language from the 38 extant plays penned by the Bard, as well as incorporating several of his sonnets and fragments of his extended poetry, the lives of William and Anne Shakespeare are re-imagined and reborn. This short, innovative new production plays around with notions of conflict between the duality of artist and lover. My Second Best Bed is an original take on some of the most famous and profound words and stories ever created.
