Shakespeare in Stirling

'As part of the Royal Shakespeare Company's 'OPEN STAGES' project, John Coutts has written ' SHAKESPEARE IN STIRLING'; in which the great poet and dramatist makes an undercover visit to Scotland as an English government agent. He visits the royal court in Castle, where King James VI is scheming to inherit the English throne.
Subtitled 'an unhistorical fantasy', John's one-act play presents an entertaining view of life at the turn of the sixteenth century, asks questions about the role of the artist in society, and offers suggestions as to the motivation of the the ever-enigmatic "Master W.S."
The play will be performed as part of 'Midsummer Madness' to be presented by the Riverside Drama Club at The Cowane Centre, Stirling, from May 16-19.'
