Mrs. McKee’s British Literature Students See “Shakespeare’s Will”


Mrs. McKee’s British & World Literature students traveled to the Merrimack Repertory Theatre this past week to view “Shakespeare’s Will,” a one-woman play by Vern Thiessen.  “Shakespeare’s Will” is based on the life of Anne Hathaway, his wife and mother of his three children, and his controversial decision to bequeath her nothing but his “second best bed.”  Students commented that, despite the artistic license taken by the playwright, it helped demystify Shakespeare and remind us that he was, after all, just a man.

While this particular run of the play is all but over (it closes on Feb 3), you can find more about the production by visiting HERE
