Description

William 'Cavaliero' Kempe was a gentleman player, juggling jester and London's finest clown, until... he fell out with Will 'git-face' Shakespeare. Kempe died alone and poverty-stricken, not far from the original Globe Theatre, of which he was an original shareholder. He faded into obscurity, a world away from his former life, having originated some of literature's best-known characters, including Bottom, Dogberry, and even Falstaff. Join Kempe as he gives his final performance to an audience of a mouse and a marrot, and tells us what really happened between him and Shakespeare.
