February 1 – 25, 2018
Playwright William Shagspeare is commissioned by Robert Cecil, the most powerful man in England, to write the true historical account of a failed terrorist attempt to kill King James I. But as Shag and his renowned theatrical troupe rehearse the so-called Gunpowder Plot play, they suspect the King's version might be a cover-up. Confronted with a moral and artistic dilemma, the actors attempt to negotiate the thin and treacherous line between speaking truth to power and hanging onto life and limb.
