• "The BBC’s Horrible Histories children’s show will make the leap to the big screen when the untold story of William Shakespeare is revealed in the first feature film created by the team behind the award-winning series."

    • "Written by and starring Laurence Rickard and Ben Willbond, BILL tells the story of how hopeless lute player Bill Shakespeare leaves his family and home to follow his dream."

    • "The producers promise: “It’s a tale of murderous kings, spies, lost loves, and a plot to blow up Queen Elizabeth. Can one man prove the quill is mightier than the sword?”

    • "Rickard and Willbond said: “BILL is a comedy adventure for all the family. We’re playing with history, just as Shakespeare did, for the entertainment of the audience. And we like to think he’d be OK with it. Apart from the bit where he’s dressed as a tomato.”
