Sarah Hamilton and Clinton Barker perform MARLOW / SHAKESPEARE - LOVE AND OTHER AFFLICTIONS at OzMade Musicals 2005Cross-dressing, sword fighting, excessive drinking and soaring language in the Elizabethan tradition.

 

In 1593 London, Horace Grinspoon, proprietor of the Rotherhythe Inn, has commissioned Shakespeare and Marlowe to write a musical play to be a vehicle for the talents of his mistress and his daughter.  As time progresses, the boundary between off-stage and on-stage events becomes increasingly blurred.
