Upstart Crow

Tonight sees the first episode of Upstart Crow, a sitcom about Shakespeare and his family by Ben Elton and starring David Mitchell. The title comes from a diss aimed at the Bard by playwright Robert Greene. Even though he may be the first professional author in British history, when was the last time you saw a Robert Greene play?

Short of wanting to run an Elizabethan game away from courts and battlefields, it could be a good pointer for a historical or time travel game that the PCs meet a famous figure from history and nobody at the time seems all that impressed.
