We first encounter "Will Shaxberd" at the Inn of the White Horse during one of Dream's centennial meetings with Hob Gadling as told in The Sandman: The Doll's House. Dream commissions two plays from Shakespeare, asking the author "Would you write great plays? Create new dreams to spur the minds of men? Is that your will?"

In The Sandman: Dream Country ""Will Shekespear" and his company perform A Midsummer Night's Dream for the first time. Their audience is Dream and his guests, the Faerie, Auberon, Titania, and Robin Goodfellow among them. This is the first of two plays Dream has commissioned.
