Shakespeare"

Happy Birthday Shakespeare isn't really academically challenging (if
that is what you'd like to know).  It is the story of a man who has a
dream to own a B&B in Shakespeare's hometown and how he gets there
(through a series of romantic entanglements - his wife, a mistress).
There is a 'Birthday Procession' but it does not come close at all to
what actually occurs on the day.  Watch it if you must, but purely for
entertainment value, not scholastic or academic interest.
