Welcome to this teaching material for London Toast Theatre’s spring production, Shakespeare’s Ghost, in which we play with the intriguing mystery of the Shakespeare authorship question; who really wrote the gems of literature that still hold our intellect and imagination 400 years after their supposed author passed away? Was William Shakespeare, the glove maker’s son from Stratford on Avon, a front for a furtive ghost or quite simply that most fascinating of phenomena - a true genius? Did Christopher Marlowe die at Deptford in 1593, or was it a deftly staged disappearance?

Based on various online resources and an excerpt from our script, we have put together a variety of exercises for you and your students to explore with us the mystery behind the man, the riddle of the writer, the gossip about the ghost…

Speaking of ghosts, we have taken the artistic liberty of prolonging the life of Sir Francis Walsingham so that in our play, he is alive in 1616 when William Shakespeare dies. In real life, Sir Francis died in 1590. The other characters are only present according to their life span in history. Why have we kept on the Queen Elisabeth’s spymaster, former employer of Christopher Marlowe and several of the people concerned in the events surrounding Marlowe’s death (?) at Deptford? Well, why not ponder that in class?

As a little extra for teachers and other aficionados, our play is a tapestry of original words interwoven with quotations from Shakespeare. So challenge a colleague to a duel in theatre where the eyes of men are idly bent on him that enters next hoping to spot the reference…
