"Shakespeare Birthplace Trust" (SBT) Shakespeare Authorship Coalition (SAC)
Mock Trials are simulated fictional trials for teaching or training purposes, corresponding to a realistic setting ( with prosecution, defense, lawyers, judges, pleadings, witnesses, expert reports, etc.)
The "Shakespeare Authorship Coalition"(SAC) a "US" located association" fighting for the recognition of a legitimate doubt about Shakespeare of Stratford as the author of Shakespeare's works, consisting mainly of supporters of the Oxford theory, has sent an "open letter" on November 8, 2013, to the "Shakespeare Birthplace Trust" (SBT) in Stratford challenging them to prove that Shakspere, the man from Stratford, and Shakespeare, the author of the plays, are the same man.
If the "SBT" were to succeed, the "SAC" will provide a donation of 40,000 Pounds: The "Shakespeare Birthplace Trust" could not refuse this offer, since in its book they recently declared the authorship "beyond all doubt ".
Comment: An amusing modern farce. The "Trust" will never agree to the offer, the " SAC " will never agree of losing their money!
