Who is this mysterious play write? For nearly 500 years, historians have been baffled as to how Shakespeare could have authored so many plays, if it truly was Shakespeare. Various historians have come up with numerous theories as to who wrote the plays. Yet the outcome has been the same, there is no solid evidence to neither confirm nor deny that Shakespeare truly did author the plays because most of the evidence is contradictory.
