MIDSUMMER LIFE CRISIS: The acclaimed play about the acclaimed playwright comes to Hammer Theater

Set during the latter part of Will Shakespeare’s life, he is now a wealthy and successful man. So, why isn’t he happy? Why is his wife angry with him? And where is that damn dog? This critically acclaimed play creatively imagines the Bard’s personal life as it follows him through a sleepless night in Stratford—as the skeletons of a famous marriage are dragged out the closet. Shakespeare fans are sure to be delighted with clever homages, and newcomers will appreciate the complex portrayal of the man who changed the English language. Runs through Feb. 11. (SP)
