Nothing Much About Doo-Doo

In 1584, the yet-unproduced playwright could not break into the prestigious venues with his first play - which, as it turns out - was a murder mystery. When the Globe Theatre would not permit "Nothing Much About Doo Doo" on its main stage, Shakespeare begged them for space somewhere to premier his show. The Globe allowed him to produce it in the dining room - and thus, Shakespeare invented murder mystery dinner theatre. He would spend the next 30 years trying to redeem himself.

Edmund Burymore (below) was on the academic pursuit of another lost Shakespeare play when he discovered "Nothing Much About Doo Doo." He is still looking for the lost script to "Henry VIII, I am, I am."
