Shakespeare Under the Bed is a fantasy tragicomedy where a scientist deals with the chaos of William Shakespeare as he falls in love with a drag queen, stages a coup at a theatre and threatens to topple the government.


There is only love… and theatre.


William Shakespeare - he’s baaaaaaack, he’s funny, he’s pissed and he’s taking over.
