Yes, Anne Hathaway was William Shakespeare's wife. But let's not dwell on him. It's Anne - defiantly graceful, unsparingly brave, proudly imperfect - whose story is on display. By the time the multiple layers of the play's title are revealed, we are irreversibly immersed in Anne's story: her sacrifices, her wisdom, her sexuality and - last but far from least - her ongoing efforts to remain faithful to herself.
