Research proves that Christopher Marlowe not only didn’t die in 1593 at the age of 29, but that he wrote the plays that made Shakespeare famous. So says author and playwright Peter B Hodges whose Off-Broadway play on the subject, Marlowe’s Fate, is now running at London’s White Bear Theatre until 27 November. He told us more about it.
Peter B Hodges’ Off-Broadway hit Marlowe’s Fate, based on the premise that Christopher Marlowe wrote the canon credited to William Shakespeare, gets its UK premiere this month at London’s White Bear Theatre, where its limited season continues until 27 November.
The question isn’t to be or not to be, but rather is this different version of Hamlet Shakespeare’s Hamlet?
