Second Best BedWhen Shakespeare died, he famously left his wife Anne only one thing… the second best bed.

This superb one-woman play, full of both humour and pathos, has received great critical acclaim since its premiere at the Swan Theatre in 2012. Liz Grand stars as Anne Hathaway on the night of Shakespeare’s funeral. The wake has finished and the mourners have all gone home, leaving Anne to remember her life with the most talented playwright the world has ever seen. Or was he? Did he write the plays? His widow would know if anybody did… Or would she?
