Shakespeare (Or His Alter Ego) Stars In New Film

Is the identify of Shakespeare written in stone?

Nothing like a guy dead for 400 years to stir up a little controversy.  But then, William Shakespeare is no ordinary dead guy. 

And he may not be William Shakespeare.  The aptly named Controversy Films recently released "Nothing is Truer Than Truth," which runs with the claim that "Shakespeare" was really Edward de Vere, who hid his true identity because of his bisexuality.  Cheryl Eagan-Donovan made the film; she visits the studio with the story of its making.  Earl Showerman, local Oxfordian, joins in.

The film screens for free at the Meese Auditorium at Southern Oregon University, Friday (March 29th) at 1 PM.
