Shakespeare and his women

Shakespeare and his women en Forum Teatro

1,606 AD. The renowned writer William Shakespeare receives a new commission from King James I of England and VI of Scotland. He is to write a play where the king is glorified, inspired by the treaty of demonism, written by the monarch himself. William is somewhat embarrassed by the commitment, particularly as he is suffering from a creative crisis. Lucy, his young servant, encourages him to take a few days off to find his lost inspiration. What William does not know is that Lucy, at night, sneaks into a small theatre to act out some of the most sublime female roles of the great English playwright, something strictly forbidden by royal decree. The accidental discovery of this fact, leads William Shakespeare to ask Lucy for help in accomplishing the special request that the King has ordered, and therefore helping him to get in His Majesty´s good books once again.
