THE BOOK OF WILL is presented by special arrangement with Dramatists Play Service, Inc., New York.
Lauren Gunderson, one of the country’s most successful contemporary playwrights, pens a lively love letter to the theatre in her award winning new play; The Book of Will.
After the death of their friend and mentor, two of Shakespeare’s actors promise to publish a first edition of his original plays and preserve the words that shaped their lives. In order to honor the legacy of the man they loved, they’ll have to battle an unscrupulous book publisher, a boozy poet laureate, and their own rag-tag company of actors and stage managers. Amidst the noise and color of Elizabethan London, The Book of Will tells a true and unforgettable story of love, loss, and laughter, while shedding new light on the characters behind the plays we know so well.
