Or possibly it was a rat. It was hard to tell, so closely packed was the audience. Whatever it was, Willy knew one thing: he wouldn't have swapped places with anyone! Straight outta Stratford, these twisted takes on the Bard's works deliver not only bucket-loads of the author's trademark headlong humour, but reveal for the first time how elements of the greatest plays of all time may have been inspired by young Shakespeare's misadventures on the infamous Black Skulls tour of 1575." -- publisher's blurb.
