For All Time
It is 1613. Two men meet in a room above a London pub. They have until the morning to complete the play they are writing together, but tiredness, confusion, egos, failing memories, lost loves and copious amounts of alcohol all conspire to get in the way. Can Margaret, the pub's landlady, help them?
Originally commissioned by Theatre by the Lake, Keswick, to celebrate the theatre's 10th anniversary, For All Time then transfered to the Stephen Joseph Theatre, Scarborough and was even discussed on the BBC Radio 4 Today programme by the author, Professor Stanley Wells and Jim Naughtie.
For All TIme asks probing questions about the last few years of Shakespeare's life. And just who did write all those plays?
