Kristin Wold in "Shakespeare's Will"

This was one of Shakespeare & Company's occasional plays by others, and Wold was super, but I didn't think much of the play itself.  She was Anne Hathaway in an imaginative recreation of the Shakespeare-Hathaway marriage that sort of threw in Shakespeare-is-gay plus Anne has lots of lovers plus a revenge explanation for the famous "second best" bed bequest.  She did children and Anne Hathaway's father so well, plus "Bill" and his sister Joan.  She was really terrific.

The play or novel someone should write is about the female Shakespeare Virginia Woolf imagined-- how a woman could never have been a Shakespeare in the sixteenth century.
