By then he's already married, the father of three and a full-fledged, wildly successful young actor and playwright! Shakespeare's so-called "lost years" have confounded scholars for generations. Writer's Cramp (or How Will Shakespeare Got Into Show Biz) gleefully jumps in to fill in the gaps! It's 1585, Will is a 21-year-old dreamer, the father of three and quite jobless. He'd rather cavort with children and fiddle around with phrases than worry about bread on the table and household chores.  More...
