The Book of Will
By Lauren Gunderson
Directed by Geoff Elliott and Julia Rodriguez-Elliott
The year is 1619, three years since the death of William Shakespeare. His closest friends are struck with the epiphany that most of his plays exist only in the fragile memories of aging actors. Hence they become passionately determined to immortalize his work in what is to become the first printed collection of his plays. Lauren Gundersen’s love letter to The Bard and the world of theatre, revels in a comically outlandish but true story of love, loss, and laughter.
