About this show

England, 1585. The young Will Shakespeare is living in the peaceful town of Stratford-upon-Avon, in the heart of England with his newlywed wife, Anne. But something's missing. He's dreaming of prophecies, rough magic and words no one is able to find. As he starts following these dreams, life takes him on a journey, from under the protection of an immensely rich Lord to nights in brawl taverns with travelling actors. But Elizabethan England is not an easy place to thrive... Find out the story of how Will became William Shakespeare through this play bursting with echoes to his future works, in between fantasies and reality.

Join us for this 70 minutes journey of Shakespeare's Lost Years.
