Amelia: Undiscovered Country
Two actors in search of an author
What if the true author of the Shakespeare canon was in fact an Italian-Jewish woman?
The English poetess and proto-feminist, AmeliaBassano Lanier, was famed for her beauty, wit and exoticism in the Court of Elizabeth I. Already cited by many historians as the inspiration for the Dark Lady of Shakespeare’s sonnets, her Jewish-Italian heritage, coupled with her career as a Courtesan, suggests she may have in fact been the author of the plays themselves. For two actors stuck in confinement, challenging the works of Shakespeare through this new filter becomes first a game, then a quest to prove her claim to the authorship.
