Shakespeare Solved ®

Shakespeare Solved ® is a forthcoming series of novels that covers the Bard's entire life and work.

These novels solve the mysteries surrounding Shakespeare by transporting us back in time, to walk in his shoes, and see his world through his eyes.

Only when we see Shakespeare in his original historical context can we understand what his plays and poems really mean.

This blog explains some of my ideas and discoveries, to prepare for this series of novels.

Richard Armitage and Shakespeare

Happy Birthday Richard Armitage!

Wouldn't he be great in some Shakespeare?

Of course he would!

He is such a great actor. I have seen just a great deal of his work, from North and South, MI:5 / Spooks, Robin Hood, and of course most recently as Thorin Oakenshield in the new Hobbit films.

There are so many Shakespeare roles he could play -- from Hamlet, Macbeth, Richard III, Iago, Coriolanus, and Brutus. I would personally love to see him as Petruchio in Taming of the Shrew.

He would be fantastic as Mark Antony.

Looking at his biography, he has some classical training, he has done quite a bit of stage work, and even was a supporting player for the Royal Shakespeare Company.

He also was in the Shakespeare ReTold episode of Macbeth, and he was in a TV film adaptation of Macbeth back in 2001. So, he is not unfamiliar with the Bard.

What about Richard Armitage in some Shakespeare Solved?

I think he would also be perfect as one of the Elizabethan actors with Shakespeare, performing some of these plays for the very first time in history, in my new versions of the plays.

It would be exciting to see him with other great UK actors, on the stage at the Theatre in Shoreditch or the Globe, bringing these plays to life in an entirely new way.

What do you think?

If you agree with me that he should do some Shakespeare, please show your support on facebookTwitterPinterestGoogle Plus or Tumblr.
