About The Book of Will
A comedy about the actors who saved Shakespeare
The King’s Men are getting the band back together. Their goal: to gather the Bard’s scattered masterpieces and save his words before they’re lost to history…
Shakespeare has barely been dead for 3 years when a pirated Hamlet rip-off hits a stage near the Globe Theatre. His old acting troupe friends are livid. To save Will’s works for the ages, they hatch a near-impossible plan to collect his words on paper, setting them off on a bonkers race against time through London. Their hearts are on the line and those they love are counting on them - to maybe leave a legacy that will last forever?
Don’t miss this award-winning, fast-paced and very funny play in its European premiere production.
