Shakespeare’s Fool

William ‘Cavaliero’ Kempe was one of the finest performers of the Elizabethan age…until he fell out with Will ‘git-face’ Shakespeare.

Kempe died alone and poverty stricken, not very far from the original Globe Theatre, a world away from his former life having supposedly originated some of literature’s best-known characters, including Bottom, Dogberry, and Falstaff.

Join Will ‘Cavaliero’ Kempe as he gives his final performance to an audience of a mouse and a marrote and tells us what really happened between him and William Shakespeare.

A bittersweet tale, told by an idiot.
