Big Time

Synopsis
Radio play by Jonathan Holloway. Shakespeare died 400 years ago on the same day as the Spanish writer Cervantes - except they didn’t. The calendars of the two countries were ten days apart. Cervantes plots to outwit his appointed death by heading to Stratford, intending to get Shakespeare out of his deathbed.
