Why love Shakespeare?
The answers to this question come from the man who memorized all 154 of Shakespeare’s Sonnets. These sonnets are mini-emotional laboratories, written for private consumption by personal friends of the Bard, that reveal a world exploring the complete range of human emotions in 14 line verse.
Will Sutton steers a heady light-hearted voyage through the works, exploring Shakespeare’s complex views on love, hate, fear, jealousy, angst and happiness that conclude with the Bard’s guide to better living: “Know Thyself”.
Sixteen years of research, studying, committing sonnets to memory and perfecting the art of sonnet-eering bear fruit when William issues his Sonnet Challenge – give him any sonnet number or a sentence or a word and he will perform your chosen Sonnet for you – or perhaps you think you can perform them better?
This highly entertaining play is as much for those who are passionate about Shakespeare as those ‘who couldn’t care less’ and the fifty minutes fly by without so much as a cough, yawn or snore from the audience – Could this really be Shakespeare?
