Exit Burbage: Shakespeare muse?

Shakespeare for Schools Exit Burbage

This fantastic look at the leading actor who worked with Shakespeare throughout his writing career. Burbage is the first to play Macbeth, Hamlet, Othello Lear et al. He must of been so flexible and it shows me that creating theatre is team art. We will call it The Burbage when it’s built.

Who Was Shakespeare?

There is very little evidence left of the life of William Shakespeare. What we do know is that Shakespeare was not upper class, or a university graduate and was from a small provincial town. This has lead certain people to believe that it is impossible that he could have written some of the finest plays, even sentences in the English language.

Well, I think Peter Ackroyd’s biography sorts that one out, making clear connections between the plays and the life and language of Warwickshire.

Michael Wood’s ‘In search of Shakespeare’ makes a good read but I think it is out of print; there are plenty of second hand copies flying around the internet or you can watch the BBC series.
