Shakespeare for My Father: A One-woman Play in Two Acts
The renowned actress's first foray into playwriting as family reminiscences developed into a complex, funny and moving portrait of a child's longing for the love of the inscrutable, daunting and charismatic Shakespearean actor who was her father. Acclaimed in America and Great Britain, Shakespeare for My Father weaves scenes from the Bard that delightfully coalesce with events in Ms. Redgrave's young life, eliciting memories of Sir Michael and engaging impressions of the celebrated stars who frequented the Redgrave's home and lives.
