September 2014 : Tiger Theatre Present their 2014/2015 One Act Play Production

‘Bill and Ben’

By Richard James


The action takes place in a cell at Newgate Prison, on the morning of 5th October, 1598.

Ben Jonson is spending his last day in his condemned cell, after killing an actor in a duel. He has a surprise visitor – William Shakespeare, who comes to plead with him to perform a ‘neck-verse’ – reciting a Psalm, that may save him from the noose. But what does Shakespeare have to gain?



·         William Shakespeare: Adam Dryer

·         Ben Jonson : Robert Thomson
