Billy Shakespeare

Synopsis
Feature film. What if William Shakespeare never existed... until now. Billy Shakespeare is caught in a love triangle of confused sexuality, cross dressing, mistaken identity, and bedroom trysts. Does Shakespeare love his lusty best friend, Wilma Hartford, who’s also a drag queen, or his lovely long-time girlfriend Anne Hathaway. All the while, Shakespeare peddles his screenplays in Hollywood. Renaissance and modern sensibilities clash when an all-male stage version of Macbeth and the misogynistic low-budget film The Taming of the Shrew open simultaneously.
