I saw Bingo at Stratford-Upon-Avon in 1976 (Patrick Stewart played the
lead).  I subsequently read it.  Without any particular love for Edward
Bond or Marxism, and despite my very particular love for Shakespeare, I
think that it's the most distinguished work about the man ever written.
The scene with Ben Jonson has haunted me for the past 25 years.
