What if characters in Shakespeare had a different narrative? We bring together two writers who have developed what the Bard created to change our thinking. Natasha Solomons is the author of five internationally bestselling novels, including Mr Rosenblum's List, The Novel in the Viola, and The Gallery of Vanished Husbands. In her latest Fair Rosaline, she reimagines how things might have been for Juliet's cousin passed over by Romeo despite his declaration 'The all-seeing sun / ne'er saw her match since first the world begun'. In Lady Macbethad, the actress and writer Isabelle Schuler reimagines the life of Gruoch – the Scottish queen who inspired one of Shakespeare's most famous characters.
