Description

Living in a wild world full of unpredictable creatures—beasts, beggars, witch hunters, and actors—William's family must find a way to cope with their changing Elizabethan world. With four legs, a keen eye, and a sharp tongue, Hooker, Shakespeare's dog, tells the story of how the Stratford rogue became the world's most famous playwright. Based on the novel by Leon Rooke, Shakespeare's Dog tells the tale of the Bard's life from a unique perspective, showing that in the Elizabethan era, lust, love, and lives collide, and it is anyone's guess who is top dog.

Editorial Review

"In his bawdy stage adaptation… Winnipeg playwright Rick Chafe has richly imagined the circumstances that altered the course of literary history and set a grasping Stratford glover's son on the road to London and immortality." —What's on Winnipeg
