THE BOOK OF WILL
by Lauren Gunderson
Directed by Remy Prichard
30 March – 1 April, 2023
A play about loss, remembering, and the power of storytelling.
Without William Shakespeare, we wouldn’t have literary masterpieces like Romeo and Juliet. But without Henry Condell and John Heminges, we would have lost half of Shakespeare’s plays forever! After the death of their friend and mentor, the two actors are determined to compile the First Folio and preserve the words that shaped their lives. They’ll just have to borrow, beg, and band together to get it done. Amidst the noise and color of Elizabethan London, THE BOOK OF WILL finds an unforgettable true story of love, loss, and laughter, and sheds new light on a man you may think you know.
Role included: masterclass with cast and team, on Shakespeare’s world, creating and printing the First Folio, women in Shakespeare.
Provided rehearsal room support to director, production manager, cast
