Friended by Shakespeare
Written and Performed by Charles David Richards
This one act, one man play is about a little known member of William Shakespeare’s acting companies between the years of 1592 and 1612. A Player named Jon Sincler, sometimes referred to by Shakespeare as Sinklo, was it seems a friend of the playwright, with roles in many of his plays but never a Sharer in the Company. Not much is known about him but the play gives the character Jon Sincler the chance to explain himself, as he shares what he is about to do to pay tribute to his friend, William Shakespeare.
