Mark Rylance celebrates Shakespeare via this promenade show in atmospheric Westminster Abbey

We don't exactly know when William Shakespeare was born, and there are those – including the great actor Mark Rylance – who question whether he actually wrote the plays attributed to him. Still, it’s the symbolic import that counts, and this year Rylance and his director wife Claire van Kampen will once again approximately mark the April 23 birthday of William Shakespeare by staging ‘Shakespeare within the Abbey’, in which Rylance will head up a company of actors who will scatter throughout Westminster Abbey performing snatches of the Bard’s plays, songs and poems to wandering audiences. Presented by Shakespeare’s Globe.
