1604 Production’s Last Will. & Testament, the most current documentary on the Shakespearean question (not to mention the most professional that has been been produced since the 1987 Frontline “Shakespeare Mystery”), premiered last weekend at the Austin film festival. Last Will brings together authorship scholars from all over the world, including cameo appearances by Dr. Johnathan Bate and Dr. Stanley Wells, arguing (sort of) for the orthodox attribution of the works.
According to Wells the average Shakespearean biography is “95% fiction and 5% fact.” Yet the traditional case is “beyond reasonable doubt.”
Are we having fun yet?
