Play: Marlow’s Ghost
You must have a mask to wear during the performance when not drinking, & when moving around in the club.
William Shakespeare, now retired and living in Stratford-upon-Avon is haunted by the ghost of a fellow playwright, assassinated nearly a quarter century before.
Marlowe's Ghost provides an answer to two great mysteries; the reason why Shakespeare aged forty seven, retired at the height of his powers and also why he shunned the recognition due to him, even during his prolific years, to the extent that there are many who question the authorship of his plays.
“Two things motivate men above all else, the desire for immortality and the desire for revenge. In my work I satiated both desires but the latter was far stronger.”
William Shakespeare, Stratford-upon-Avon 1615
