When 13 year old Ivie starts speaking in Shakespearean verse her friends find it weird and her mother is outraged. She takes her to church to be ‘cured’ but when that fails she turns to a therapist with an equally encyclopedic knowledge of the bard. He engages Ivie in a Shakespeare face-off on the stage of the National Theatre, where the reasons for Ivie’s obsession are uncovered.

Followed by filmmaker Q and A.
