This is the story of how Will became William Shakespeare, in English by playwright and director Victoria Baumgartner. Will is living in the peaceful town of Stratford-upon-Avon with his new wife, Anne. But he’s dreaming of prophecies, rough magic and words no one is able to find. As he starts following these dreams, life takes him on an adventurous journey.

The audience was invited to find out the story of how Will became William Shakespeare through this play bursting with echoes to his future works, in between fantasies and reality. The original version, played in French by Arnaud Huguenin, David Salazar, Léa Fanchon and Victoria Baumgartner was performed during the weekend of 14-15 April.
