Wednesday, September 28 from 8:15 – 9:15pm PST (3.15AM GMT)
Tune in tonight for a heated debate regarding the Shakespeare Authorship Question as ANONYMOUS Director Roland Emmerich, the film’s Writer/Producer John Orloff and Historian/Writer/Lecturer Charles Beauclerk face off against UC Berkeley’s Professor Alan H. Nelson in a live webcast.
The webcast will be streamed live below. For UK visitors, it’ll be at 3.15AM on Thursday 29th September.
We’ll be showing the highlights in a couple of days time, so don’t worry if you’re tucked up in bed at that time.
Set in the political snake-pit of Elizabethan England, Anonymous speculates on an issue that has for centuries intrigued academics and brilliant minds such as Mark Twain, Charles Dickens, and Sigmund Freud, namely: who actually created the body of work credited to William Shakespeare? Experts have debated, books have been written, and scholars have devoted their lives to protecting or debunking theories surrounding the authorship of the most renowned works in English literature. Anonymous poses one possible answer, focusing on a time when scandalous political intrigue, illicit romances in the Royal Court, and the schemes of greedy nobles lusting for the power of the throne were brought to light in the most unlikely of places: the London stage.
The film is directed by Roland Emmerich, written by John Orloff, and produced by Roland Emmerich, Larry Franco, and Robert Léger.
ANONYMOUS will be released in theaters nationwide on October 28, 2011.
