The Upstart Crow
- The play: a short comedy-drama by playwright Vincent Dowling that attempts to uncover still-lingering questions about the life of the Bard himself, William Shakespeare
- The plot: The Upstart Crow follows Shakespeare’s daughter, Susanna Shakespeare Hall, as she enlists her father’s friend, the actor Richard Burbage, to help shed light on the father she never got to know.
- The appeal: Fans of Shakespeare will find much to love in Dowling’s insight into the meanings imbued in Shakespeare’s speeches, many of which the two actors perform throughout the one-act play.

About Ohio Shakespeare Festival
"If you’ve ever wished that a Shakespeare production could somehow be outfitted with annotations and footnotes, to help you understand what’s going on at every moment, there’s a much easier (and more enjoyable) alternative,” says theater critic Christine Howey. “Just sit in the audience while the Ohio Shakespeare Festival is performing.” The lively and fun characterizations are a fitting approach to the works of the ever-sly Bard.
