All is True

Thursday 23rd May 2019 - 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm, Palmer Building

Judi Dench and Ian McKellen offer solid support in a story of Shakespeare’s home life that tiptoes between fact and fiction written by Ben Elton and directed by Kenneth Branagh. After a fire destroys the Globe Theatre, William Shakespeare (Branagh) retires to his family home in Stratford. There, he tries to rekindle his relationship with his wife, Anne (Dench), and unmarried daughter Judith, while planting a garden to commemorate his lost son, Hamnet.
