Living in a wild world full of unpredictable creatures – beasts, beggars, witch hunters and actors – William’s family must find a way to cope with their changing Elizabethan world. With four legs, a keen eye and a sharp tongue, Hooker, Shakespeare’s dog, tells the story of how the Stratford rogue became the world’s most famous playwright. Based on the novel by Leon Rooke, Shakespeare’s Dog tells the tale of the Bard’s life from a unique perspective, showing that in the Elizabethan era, lust, love and lives collide, and it is anyone’s guess who is top dog.

From Shakespeare's Dog
