Bill (2014)

From the creators of the BBC's Horrible Histories, comes Bill, a re-imagination of Shakespeare's 'lost years'. When terrible lute player and general layabout 'Bill' Shakespeare leaves his hometown to pursue his fortunes in London, he finds himself caught in a conspiracy to assassinate the Queen. With the Spanish delegates at court plotting to kill her, Queen Elizabeth demands that a play be performed for her. Bill sees his chance to shine, and he'd better - because if the play isn't good, she'll have his head chopped off.

THE OBSERVER’S MARK KERMODE SAYS: “Nicely balancing its historically literate gags with broad knockabout slapstick, Bill is a crowd-pleasing treat that should tickle audiences young and old alike.”
