Mysteries Resolved and Revealed

Shakespeare wrote a lot of sonnets. Hundreds, actually. This, of course, led people to believe they couldn't all be about his wife. Because, c'mon. In the 1970s English historian A.L. Rowse claimed to know the identity of Shakespeare's mistress, commonly referred to as the Dark Lady. His research has fascinated both scholars and thespians for decades, inspiring Dr. Andrew B. Harris to write a play, The Lady Revealed. Harris teaches in the theater department at University of North Texas, with which he's collaborated to present a staged reading of his new work. See the Dark Lady come to life at Theatre Three at 7 p.m. Tuesday and Wednesday. Tickets are free, but reservations will be accepted in advance by calling 214-871-3300.
