Marlow / Shakespeare - Love and Other Afflictions (TAS)
Music and Lyrics by Stephen Hyde
Debuted OzMade Musicals 2005
Cross-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.
