ANNE by Victoria Baumgartner, in collaboration with Will & Co, had it’s online premiere as part of Around The Globe In Eighty Plays, a virtual festival created by Claire Monique Martin to raise money in support of Shakespeare’s Globe.
“They never taught me how to read. In all the years I was wife, I never once read the plays”
Anne Hathaway was married to the most famous writer of all time when she was 26. Despite raising their family of three children, we think she never came to London to see Shakespeare’s plays. She is buried next to him, in Stratford-upon-Avon.
It was a pleasure to perform for this cause, and translating the piece for online was a totally new experience. Our trailer above gives you a flavour!
