What is a legacy? What is greatness? Can we trust our history, or even our own memory? The Rumoured Lyfe and Certain Death of Delia Bacon asks these questions by exploring the life of American pioneer Delia Bacon, the first person to advance the theory that William Shakespeare did not write the plays attributed to him. The controversial Shakespeare Authorship Question is inherent in the structure of this sung- through musical, with music and lyrics written by several authors in close collaboration.
