About the Author

GregRobin Smith’s work as a writer, educator, performer and fundraiser goes back over 35 years and includes work fundraising with his one-man show on Benjamin Franklin, teaching hands-on history classes to thousands of students, touring, consulting, lecturing and an occasional foray into being practical. Despite that, to examine the mindset of an Elizabethan poet, he wrote and posted over 2,000 sonnets. That is how New Zealand screenwriter Guy Hamling discovered GregRobin’s work and so asked him to translate Hamling’s script ‘VERONA’ into Shakespearean English. That work inspired GregRobin to write To Each Their Own.

'To Each Their Own' Reviewed by A.M. Brosius

Full disclosure: I have known and liked GregRobin Smith for many years. I admire him, and I am therefore predisposed to enjoy his work.

This book is the script for a play done in the style of William Shakespeare and his contemporaries. Mr. Smith has spent years researching the elements of the Shakespearean sonnet, and composing and reciting sonnets in the Elizabethan style. For this project it is apparent that he increased his efforts in research significantly, going so far as to enumerate for himself (and for his readers) the significant elements of all of Shakespeare's comedies. (The table illustrating this has been a big hit among my friends at parties.)

All of this research would be a laudable effort in itself; that Mr. Smith then composed such a winning play from the knowledge gained is a very happy result.

I am not an expert on the Bard, but I very much enjoyed reading the script. It has a realistic aspect to it: when I read Shakespeare, I often find myself returning to a sequence or scene, over and over, trying to hear the iambic pentameter as it ought to be heard. I found myself doing that throughout To Each Their Own. I would like to see this play, when it is produced, if only to hear the words spoken as Mr. Smith would like us to hear them.

I recommend this script to anyone who enjoys theater, in any of its many forms.
