Coinciding with Heritage Open Days we present the film: Anonymous.
Set in the political snake-pit of Elizabethan England, Anonymous speculates on an issue that has for centuries intrigued academics and brilliant minds; who actually created the body of work credited to William Shakespeare? Anonymous poses one possible answer, focusing on a time when scandalous political intrigue, illicit romances in the Royal Court, and the schemes of greedy nobles lusting for the power of the throne were brought to light in the most unlikely of places: the London stage. Starring Rhys Ifans, Vanessa Redgrave and David Thewlis.
The film will be introduced by the Dr Matthew Woodcock, Senior Lecturer in Literature at the University of East Anglia
