Description

Carderock Falls Manor and We Will Survive Cancer cordially invite you to a thought-provoking and wonderful presentation of the life of Edward De Vere, whom many scholars believe was the “Real Shakespeare.

“O Mistress Mine”: The Secrets, Lies and Loves and Wives of Edward De Vere . ”. C2017 All Rights Reserved by Robin K. Phillips

Before the show, enjoy a glass of wine and heavy hors d'oeuvres overlooking the Carderock Falls garden, listening to the haunting strains of Elizabethan music. Descend to ‘Woof Trap Theatre for Act I, then a fifteen-minute Intermission will be followed by Act II. After the show, wine and an array of desserts will be served.=

“O Mistress Mine” is a song from “Twelfth Night,” a Shakespeare play about mistaken identities. This lively, witty and charming evening of entertainment is based on a one-woman stage-show created by playwright and actress Robin Phillips.

This beautifully-researched video offers a fresh and engaging exploration of the mystery of the true authorship of the Shakespeare canon. It is presented as a case of mistaken identities, which is at the center of a four-hundred-year-old mystery. Prepare to be surprised and entertained.

As part of this fascinating detective story, Robin explores the lives of two Englishmen: Will Shaksper, of Stratford-Upon-Avon and Edward de Vere, the 17th Earl of Oxford – Only one can be the true author of the Shakespeare Canon.

“O MISTRESS MINE: The Secrets, Lies, Loves & Wives of Edward de Vere.”

Rarely has the Elizabethan era and the Shakespeare authorship issue been presented in such a delightful, fascinating and fun way. It’s like watching a private World Premiere of a made-for-TV presentation. Robin will introduce the video in full Elizabethan costume. After the screening, Robin will answer questions about what promises to be a lively Q & A session.

She has created critically-acclaimed plays on Agatha Christie as well as the music hall artists of 20th century Paris. She is a founding member of D.C.
