It's the greatest literary mystery of all time: Who wrote the works of William Shakespeare? Although the official story of a Stratford merchant writing for the London box office has held sway for centuries, questions over the authorship of the plays and poems has persisted. Mark Twain, Sigmund Freud, Charlie Chaplin, and Orson Welles are among the many famous figures who doubt that a grain-dealer from Stratford-Upon-Avon was England's "Star of Poets". Sir Derek Jacobi leads an impressive cast featuring Oscar-winning actress Vanessa Redgrave and Tony Award-winning actor Mark Rylance on a quest to uncover the truth behind the world's most elusive author, and discovers a forgotten nobleman whose story could rewrite history.
