The Book of Will
by Austin Playhouse
May. 31 - Jun. 30, 2019
Three years after Shakespeare’s death, his plays are constantly pirated and performed in inaccurate versions that tarnish the bard's legacy. Henry Condell and John Heminges, Shakespeare's friends and actors in the King’s Men, are determined to make sure true versions of the plays survive by compiling the First Folio, recapturing the words that shaped their lives. Guided by a sense of genuine loyalty, admiration, and what really matters in life, this determined lot will beg, borrow, and steal to make sure Shakespeare's Folio survives.
“THE BOOK OF WILL…unequivocally announces Gunderson as a playwright with whom to be
reckoned. It is, quite frankly, one of the best plays I have ever seen. It will bring tears of both
laughter and sorrow to all but the most jaded audience member’s eyes. It is, in a word, a
triumph.” — Boulder Weekly (CO).
Directed by Lara Toner Haddock. Starring Huck Huckaby, Ben Wolfe, Joey Banks, Marie Fahlgren, Boni Hester, Stephen Mercantel, Toby Minor, Tom Parker, Cyndi Williams, and Owen Ziegle.
