"I Am Shakespeare" is Mark Rylance's fascinating, witty and characteristically exuberant dramatic contribution to the Shakespeare authorship debate. Is it possible that the son of an illiterate tradesman, from a small market town in Warwickshire, could have written the greatest dramatic works the world has ever seen? Mark Rylance is one of a number of leading actors who seriously question the idea that William Shakespeare was the man behind the thirty-seven plays that have moved, inspired and amazed generations. First performed at Chichester Festival Theatre in 2007, Rylance's provocative play introduces us to the main candidates and their respective claims whilst asking fundamental questions about what makes a genius, and why it all matters anyway.

"1656. A newly peaceful England is still coming to terms with its freedom from the monarchy after the bitter ravages of revolution, regicide and civil war." "A picnic in the woods at Hampton Court is the very unparliamentary setting for a meeting between two key revolutionaries: the blind poet, John Milton, and his long-term comrade, Oliver Cromwell. An unwelcome interruption leads to a heated debate which calls into question both the jaded aspirations of those in power and the utopian ideologies of those who sit on the sidelines." "Though firmly set in its period, Through a Cloud reaches forward prophetically to the present day. After a bloody insurrection, how can a country regain its equilibrium? And can good government be enforced from above on a divided nation?" "Through a Cloud was premiered in a co-production by the Drum Theatre Plymouth and Birmingham Rep."--BOOK JACKET.

"In the time of the Messiah, everything is permitted. The zealots are gathering, the city burns. The final war is coming - but no one told the men on the ground. Holed up in a ransacked building in the heart of occupied territory, two Israeli soldiers are caught under fire: Buddy and Slomo hold their ground, soldiers soldiering, keeping back the Caliphate the only way they know how. But the real danger emerges from behind their back when two wholly unexpected visitors take refuge: a Texan in a Stetson and the widow of a rabbi - fresh from a disastrous morning in Jerusalem, and chaperoned by the young captain, Yossariat." "Yossariat is having a bad day. A very, very bad day. Forced together, at the frontier between earth and heaven, the visitors' true motives become clear... Petrol Jesus Nightmare #5 (In the Time of the Messiah) is an apocalyptic vision of a new world order fuelled by faith, politics and dollars. It premiered at the Traverse Theatre, Edinburgh, during the 2006 Festival."--BOOK JACKET.
