I wasn’t sure how to categorise this as it’s based on a true story. In fact, it’s pretty similar in vein to Antony and Cleopatra, and the two of them go hand-in-hand as they were his last two tragedies. They also go hand-in-hand for me because I enjoyed them both. There’s something about actual historical historical fiction that I can’t get enough of.
So I was quite happy with this, especially because it’s one of those plays that doesn’t seem to get a huge amount of airtime. I’d love to see a production of it, especially with all of the clothing and the props. Sure, there are a couple of other Shakespeare plays that I’d prefer to see, but still!
