“To be or not to be ... Aye, there’s the point.” It’s 1619, and William Shakespeare has been dead only three years, but already many thespians are butchering his words. Actors Henry Condell and John Heminges are determined to preserve the legacy of their friend and mentor by gathering all of Shakespeare’s plays into one volume. While they know the ins and outs of iambic pentameter, they know next to nothing about binding books. Undaunted, they borrow, beg, and form unlikely bonds to get it done. Amidst the noise and color of Elizabethan London, The Book of Will tells the humorous, entertaining, and irreverent story of the creation of the First Folio. Written by the renowned contemporary playwright Lauren Gunderson, The Book of Will gives you an entirely new perspective on our theatrical history.
