2016 marked the 400th anniversary of the deaths of two of the world's most famous authors, William Shakespeare and Miguel de Cervantes. This comic romp through the lives of literary masters William Shakespeare and Miguel de Cervantes charts their influence on the modern world. It contrasts the fortunes of two contemporaries whose native countries' – England and Spain – went from alliance to enmity in a short space of time. Productions of The Curious Lives of Shakespeare & Cervantes include Adam House Theatre (Edinburgh, 2010), Bloomsbury Theatre (London, 2010), the Thai premiere (Bangkok Theatre Festival, 2014); and a staged reading at Tara Theatre (London, 2016).
