The Book of Will by Lauren Gunderson

Tuesday, February 20, 2018 at 7:30 pm

A Staged Reading

William Shakespeare wrote some of the world’s most beloved and brilliant plays – but without his friends, they may have been lost to history! After his death, Shakespeare’s friends Henry Condell and John Heminges join forces to save the plays he left behind. They may not have money, but they’re armed with wit, humor, a deep camaraderie and a passion to preserve the plays that shaped their lives. Exactly what we’ve come to expect from playwright Lauren Gunderson, THE BOOK OF WILL serves up an unforgettable true story of love, loss, and laughter.
