Hybrid texts and historical fiction
The Bloodiest Rose is based on the premise that the fair copies of Shakespeare’s plays are discovered, and a production of his previously unknown Henry VII takes place in Sydney. It is an attempt to create a narrative which is factual, entertaining and truthful. The exegesis is an analysis of how fiction is able to form a framework by which the facts may be told differently, but still faithfully, as human truths.
