Patron? Collaborator? Employer? Voyeur? Lover? Questioned about the
nature of his relationship with the 3rd Earl of Southampton, William
Shakespeare is on trial. The evidence: tender poems, financial
dependency, attempted revolution. A compelling new drama set in
Elizabethan England - a powder keg of sex, politics and power -
Dedication by Nick Dear premiered at the Nuffield Theatre, Southampton,
in September 2016.
