Shakespeare’s Will, by Vern Thiessen will be staged at Broadhembury’s new Memorial Hall on Saturday, September 9, at 7.30pm.

Sally Hyde Lomax gives a splendid and captivating soliloquising performance as Anne Hathaway, having the audience totally enthralled, and at times laughing, in Vern Thiessen’s challenging hypothetical play about William Shakespeare’s wife.

After the funeral, Shakespeare’s sister Joan delivered his Last Will and Testament to his grieving widow, Anne. Instead of immediately reading it we are led through her life, via rhetorical conversations and discussions between herself and Bill, her father, her three children, Susanna and twins Judith and Hamnet, her servants and her detested sister-in-law.

Sally has toured this play last year and this, mostly in the Midlands, but reaching as far as Cambridge, and now brings it to Devon for the first time.

Tickets, costing £10 and £8 gor concessions, are available from or by calling 01404 46212
