Synopsis
Written by the prolific John Mortimer, the British drama series Will Shakespeare focused on the Bard of Avon's formative years. Deftly mixing fact with fancy, the story concentrates on such elements as the marriage of young Will (played by Tim Curry, no less) to the older and more affluent Anne Hathaway (Meg Wynn Owen) and his hot-and-cold relationship with rival playwright Christopher Marlowe (Ian McShane). Andre Morell provided an amusing turn as Shakespearean actor Edward Alleyn, while Patience Collier was seen as the playwright's erstwhile patron Queen Elizabeth. The six episodes comprising Will Shakespeare were first broadcast from June 13 to July 18, 1978. ~ Hal Erickson, All Movie Guide
