Shakespeare and the Saint

The Shakespeare Project presented the U.S. premiere of Rowan Williams’s fantasia on a possible relationship between a young Shakespeare and the Jesuit martyr Saint Edmund Campion.

As Campion, Chris began a string of priest roles, including another famed Jesuit, Fr. Jacques Marquette.
