Bill (PG)

William ‘Bill’ Shakespeare leaves his home and family in Stratford to find fame and fortune as a playwright in Elizabethan London, but don’t be fooled, this is no ordinary telling of the history of England - especially when told by the stars from Horrible Histories!

Nicely balancing its historically literate gags with broad knockabout slapstick, Bill is a crowd-pleasing treat that should tickle audiences young and old alike. Mark Kermode, The Observer

This season is presented in association with the University of Melbourne as part of the Shakespeare 400 Melbourne program.

Shakespeare on Film was made possible with program partners The British Council and the British Film Institute.
