The Book of Will
February 17, 2023 - March 12, 2023
The comedy/drama The Book of Will by Lauren Gunderson, one of the most produced playwrights in the U.S., reveals what many don’t know about the man behind such literary masterpieces as Romeo and Juliet and Hamlet. Without Henry Condell and John Heminges, half of Shakespeare’s plays would have been lost forever. After the death of their friend and mentor, the two actors are determined to compile the First Folio and preserve the words that shaped their lives—borrowing, begging and banding together to get it done. Set amidst the noise and color of Elizabethan London, the play is an unforgettable true story of love, loss and laughter and sheds new light on the legendary playwright.
Performances run February 17–March 12, 2023.
