Together, they adapted the First Quarto version of Shakepeare’s MERRY WIVES OF WINDSOR in 2019, making it, what scholars believe to be, one of the first productions of the Q1 version since it was published exactly 400 hundred years later in 1619. On their mission to do the same with the Q1 version of HENRY THE FIFTH, Grant led the process playing King Henry before the project was halted by the COVID-19 pandemic.
