Yes, Anne Hathaway was William Shakespeare’s wife. But let’s not dwell on him. It’s Anne – defiantly graceful, unsparingly brave, proudly imperfect – whose story is on display. By the time the multiple layers of the play’s title are revealed, we are irreversibly immersed in Anne’s story: her sacrifices, her wisdom, her sexuality and – last but far from least – her ongoing efforts to remain faithful to herself.

“Flawless and formidable…an intimate portrait of a woman left alone, a woman who, despite abandonment, struggles to keep faith in her husband and the private vow they made…a script wherein ideas, scenes, and words flow like water…”
