About the Playwright

Mary Jane Schaefer, of Norwalk, Connecticut, first read Romeo and Juliet when she was twelve years old and fell irrevocably in love with William Shakespeare. She has been an actor and an academic, a dramaturg, a playwright, a wife and mother, all roads leading inevitably back to Will. Hamlet’s Shakespeare, the first of her Shakespeare trilogy, has gone through several readings. Also, some of her work has been featured at the National Artists Workshop of New England.
