COMEDY. What starts as a dream quickly turns into a nightmare when Shakespeare, sick in bed and suffering from writer’s block, is visited by some of his most famous characters including Hamlet, Ophelia, Lady Macbeth, Puck, and Romeo and Juliet. The characters try to help Shakespeare decide if his next play should be a comedy or a tragedy, but they soon find themselves competing for Shakespeare’s attention and title of most tragic character. However, even these demanding characters are no match for the ultimate shrew, Shakespeare’s wife, who is determined to cure him in time to attend the King’s winter ball.
