The South Coast Repertory company, based in Costa Mesa, will be producing an original play this coming June that takes on the Shakespeare authorship question.
The Bard of Avon is a new play by award-winning playwright Amy Freed, and will be on stage at the SCR from May 25th to July 1st. The SCR press release says, "Freed explores the debate over Shakespeare's authorship with a period comedy set in Shakespeare's day that reveals much about the nature of art and genius and how Shakespeare became Shakespeare as it introduces us to many of the Bard of Avon's contemporaries [and] asks whether Will Shaksper ... could have written the greatest works in the English language ... or might a more logical choice be the erudite Earl of Oxford? Or Sir Francis Bacon? or Queen Elizabeth."
