It's 1623. Shakespeare's editors John Heminges and Henry Condell have finally finished assembling the Bard's Complete Works. But what to do with the surplus materials? Especially the unused women's speeches? Shakespeare's Other Women puts a spotlight on the women in Shakespeare who deserved to have more stage time, or even plays of their own. Featuring a large cast of women who inhabit dozens of strong female characters drawn from Shakespeare, history, and mythology, Scott Kaiser's newest play offers 36 terrific new speeches that Shakespeare might have written for women, but didn't.
