Six Shakespearean actors and directors go in search of the greatest dramatist who ever lived by revealing the stories behind and the wonders within some of his greatest plays. Joely Richardson uncovers Shakespeare's early career, looking at how personal tragedy may have inspired one of his greatest hits and how the extraordinary female roles in the plays were actually created for young boys to act. With her mother, Vanessa Redgrave, Joely revisits the iconic RSC 1961 procduction of As You Like It and reveals how all today's actresses owe a debt of gratitude to the great female heroines of Shakeseperarean comedy.
