NARROWSBURG, NY — Written by award-winning Canadian playwright, Vern Thiessen, the full length one-act solo performance “Shakespeare’s Will” will be performed at the Tusten Theatre on Saturday, October 19 at 8 p.m. The play sheds light on William Shakespeare’s wife, Anne Hathaway. Performed by NACL Theatre’s Tannis Kowalchuk, with music by Kurt Knuth, costumes by Karen Flood, and directed by NACL resident director Mimi McGurl, the play looks through the eyes and heart of a woman and mother who spent a lifetime with and without the great playwright.
The drama begins with Hathaway arriving home after the funeral, holding a copy of Shakespeare’s will. Kowalchuk premiered “Shakespeare’s Will” in Sullivan County last season at NACL Theatre, and will travel to Pontine Theatre in Portsmouth, NH in 2014 to perform the play. Kowalchuk is co-founder, actress, and artistic director of NACL Theatre and has created and performed in over 18 original NACL productions.
