“Thus play I in one person many people.” – Richard II

The latest Shakespeare gossip is that Christopher Marlowe may have been Shakespeare’s co-author!  And that, essentially, perhaps many more of Shakespeare’s plays than we ever really realized were co-authored.  It kind of makes sense, as the theatre was so collaborative in those days; writers were also actors, actors were also stage managers, everyone did a bit of everything.  It’ll be fascinating to see what else science turns up – although, of course, nothing will ever stop the speculation, conspiracy theories, and general unknowns about our favorite Bard.
