Go On and I Will Follow

Episode 6 of 6

Shakespearean sitcom. As Will wrestles with temptation a bigger threat to his family lurks in the wings.

The day of Will's son Hamnet's confirmation is approaching and Anne has made sure it has been in Will's diary for months. The only problem is this also turns out to be the night of the first ever London Theatre Awards, and what with Will being the greatest writer of all time, and what with all the other theatre companies in London being closed all year because of the plague, Will reckons he may be in with a chance of a prize.

And there is another dilemma - if Will does go the London Theatre Awards who is going to be his plus one? He has heard that his favourite dark lady, Emilia Laier, may be free that evening. But as Will wrestles with the temptation of the London theatre there is a far bigger threat to his family's happiness lurking in the wings.
