16 things that Shakespeare and I have in common

1. Everybody thinks we’re gay.

2. We own more books than clothes.

3. We never went to university.

4. That high forehead thing.

5.  Three brothers and a sister.

6. We’re total suckers for small and dark.

7. We do a lot of our writing in bars.

8. Our closest friends are theatre people.

9. Any evidence that we were brought up Catholic is purely circumstantial.

10. Blank verse is our natural medium.

11. We’re both haunted by Christopher Marlowe.

12.  The youngest brother was the first to die.

13. A ton of plays, but no royalties.

14. Sonnets.

15. If you lock us in a room with a naked woman and a pun, we’ll go for the pun.

16. When someone asks us, “How’s the wife and kids?” we say “What wife and kids?”
