A European and UK premiere production

A Queen’s Theatre Hornchurch, Octagon Theatre Bolton, and Shakespeare North Playhouse production.

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…

Lauren Gunderson is one of the USA’s most celebrated and widely performed playwrights, most recently writing the acclaimed adaptation of The Time Traveller’s Wife (Storyhouse, Chester).

This very special European and UK premiere production of The Book of Will coincides with the 400th anniversary of the publishing of the First Folio of Shakespeare’s plays in 1623 and will be directed by the Octagon’s Artistic Director Lotte Wakeham.
