This picture convincingly presents Shakespeare as a mere actor and tavern frequenter, along with his band of roistering fellow players. It is one view of William Shakespeare firmly held by those who dispute his authorship of the plays, but looking at his faintly tipsy amusement on that pub bench, we can also easily imagine he is the great playwright enjoying a night out with some thespians wearing his own actor’s hat.
