Join these madcap merrymakers in tights as they weave their wicked way through all of Shakespeare’s Comedies, Histories, and Tragedies in one wild ride that will leave you breathless and helpless with laughter.

The Book of Will at 6th Street Playhouse

Where Would We Be Without Shakespeare’s Words?
Set in Elizabethan England, three years following William Shakespeare’s death, The King’s Men are outraged that their friend and mentor’s brilliant plays are being pirated and wretchedly performed. The acting troupe is horrified when they learn through a shocking loss just how much of Shakespeare’s words are kept in memory rather than in writing. To honor “The Bard,” they become determined to preserve the work and commit to printing it all in one volume before it is lost forever.

By Lauren Gunderson, director Libby Oberlin.
