CORONAVIRUS: All UK venues closed on 16th March 2020 and there is currently no planned re-opening time though it will not be before 1st June 2020 and is most likely to be September (according to some West End producers).

I Am Shakespeare - The BIG Secret Live - I am Shakespeare - Webcam Daytime Chat-room Show archiveA dark and stormy night. In his garage in Kent, Frank Charlton - a schoolteacher who threw away a promising academic career by daring to question the authorship of the Shakespeare plays - prepares for his daily broadcast. Through his subversive internet show, Frank continues to explore his obsession with the authorship, whilst attempting to dodge the ‘helpful’ attentions of his nutty neighbour Barry. Today, however, via the dramatic interaction of a lightning storm and the collective unconscious of the world-wide-web, Frank finds himself confronted with the real William Shakespeare… and the real Francis Bacon... then Edward de Vere, Earl of Oxford... and finally the real Mary Sidney... Mayhem ensues, as Frank tries to interview each of the four characters from the past - all of whom claim they wrote the plays - whilst his neighbour keeps interrupting and the police arrive investigating a mysterious body. Who is the real author? Can Frank restrain himself from murdering Barry long enough to take this historic opportunity and find out? Or will the police arrest him first? And what does Kirk Douglas have to do with all this?
