2:00 PM Talk: Should We Doubt Shakespeare's Identity? Join us and Bryan H. Wildenthal for a friendly and fascinating journey into the authorship question. More than 400 years after Shakespeare's time, and more than 150 years after modern alternative authorship theories began running riot in the mid-19th century, what do we really know for sure? Did William Shakespeare of Stratford-upon-Avon work with numerous co-authors, most of them uncredited at the time, as most mainstream scholars now argue? Is the case for his primary authorship really as airtight as most mainstream scholars claim? Why have some of the greatest writers, artists, intellectuals, and judicial and political leaders of modern times doubted that traditional story? Was Shakespeare of Stratford a front-man for a hidden aristocratic author? What did Ben Jonson know, and slyly hint at? What can the "Shakespeare" plays and poems themselves tell us about this issue? In his new book, "Early Shakespeare Authorship Doubts", Bryan subjects both the traditional story and the various skeptical theories to careful scrutiny.

2:00 PM Stage: The Thousandth Night Intrepid Theatre Company brings award winning solo show to San Diego for a limited 2 week run. The Thousandth Night is in occupied France in 1943, an actor is arrested for propagating subversive material and is being deported. When his train is sabotaged by members of the French resistance, he escapes from the platform and seeks refuge in the train station. His one chance for freedom before the train starts moving again is to win the support of a group of French gendarmes (the audience) by entertaining them with "amusements" that are not subversive. Playing 38 characters from The Arabian Nights, the actor becomes a male Scheherazade, spinning out stories in a chance to win his freedom. A funny yet scathing examination of complicity and self-preservation. The production opened at the Hollywood International Fringe Festival in June and then traveled to the Boulder International Fringe Festival in Boulder Colorado where it was awarded "Most Innovative Production" and "Best Of Fringe", before playing to packed houses on the main stage at the San Francisco Fringe.
