Shakespeare – Contemporaries and Conspiracies


Presenter: Viveca Ohm

Spaces Available


In this time of conspiracy theories, we will debunk one that got its start in the 19th century – the claim that Shakespeare didn’t write any of his plays but was an uneducated frontman for a variety of secret authors. We’ll look into how these ideas came about and why they became so popular. The real Shakespeare is well documented, but myths about him still abound.
