Main Street Theater presents The Book of Will
Main Street Theater will open its 43rd Season with the regional premiere of Lauren Gunderson’s The Book of Will. This compelling play tells the tale of how Shakespeare's First Folio came into existence thanks to the loyalty and love of his dear friends, particularly John Heminges and Henry Condell.
After Shakespeare’s death, his plays were pirated, performed and published in inaccurate and clumsy versions. Loyal friends and actors in Shakespeare’s company embark on a labor of love to compile the First Folio and preserve the words that shaped their lives.
