Today we bring you a quick, fun look at who Shakespeare was and how we ended up with his works, courtesy of our fun facts segment, “The Bardolator”.

Animated and voiced by Shakespeare Republic Director, Sally McLean (original concept from her series of videos for The Shakespeare Shoppe, hence mascot “Culture Pig” appearing at the end in acknowledgement), here’s a potted history of Who Was Shakespeare? (in under two minutes).

We will be bringing you more videos from the team in the next few weeks, but right now rehearsals are underway for our first four episodes and it is creative madness!  In the meantime, we couldn’t resist sharing our tongue-in-cheek take on ol’ Will.
