William Shakespeare is having a bad day. After a bad review, he doubts his ability to write. As he laments his choice to be a playwright – and considers turning to glove making like his father – he is visited by the nine Muses of Greek mythology. The Muses guide him through the stories that will become his source material for new ideas and leave him feeling inspired and ready to put his quill to paper again. Shakespeare and the Muses is an exploration of Greek mythology, Shakespeare’s works, and the question of where writers get their ideas from.
