“A triumph [with] depth, infectious humor and earthy compassion….One of the best plays I have ever seen.”

- Boulder Weekly

Our resident playwright’s own theater company is the focus of this mostly-true story, which takes us backstage at The Globe to discover how Shakespeare became Shakespeare and to meet a pair of underdogs who save English literature’s greatest works! Amidst the noise and color of Elizabethan London, THE BOOK OF WILL finds an unforgettable story of love, loss, and laughter, and sheds new light on a man you may think you know.
