Behind every Shakespeare play there is a story. Shakespeare Uncovered reveals not just the elements in the play, but the history of the play itself. What sparked the creation of each of these works? Where did Shakespeare get his plots, and what new forms of theater did he forge? What cultural, political and religious factors influenced his writing? How have the plays been staged and interpreted from Shakespeare’s time to now? Why at different times has each play been so popular – or ignored? And finally, why has this body of work endured so thoroughly? What in the end makes Shakespeare so great? In the second series of Shakespeare Uncovered, six programs combine history, biography, iconic performances, new analysis and the personal passion of its celebrated hosts -- Morgan Freeman, Joseph Fiennes, David Harewood, Hugh Bonneville, Kim Cattrall, and Christopher Plummer -- to tell the story behind the stories of Shakespeare's greatest plays.
