A LOVE LETTER TO THE THEATRE

The Book of Will  

By Lauren Gunderson
Directed by Robert Kelley


June 3–28, 2020
  

STEINBERG/ATCA NEW PLAY AWARD
REGIONAL PREMIERE

What if Shakespeare’s lines had disappeared forever? Amidst the clamor and color of Elizabethan London, this touching celebration of the theatre is a funny, heartwarming tale of lifelong collaborators struggling to assemble and publish the Bard’s life’s work—a lasting memorial to a lost friend. Facing a devious publisher, a cantankerous competitor, and their own insecurity, they illuminate this tale of love, loss, and laughter, the soaring finale of Artistic Director Robert Kelley’s 50th season at TheatreWorks.

 

This production runs approximately 2 hours and 10 minutes with one 15 minute intermission.
