What if Shakespeare’s lines had disappeared forever? Amidst the clamor and color of Elizabethan London, this touching celebration of the theatre is a funny, heartwarming tale of lifelong collaborators struggling to assemble and publish the Bard’s life’s work—a lasting memorial to a lost friend. Facing a devious publisher, a cantankerous competitor, and their own insecurity, they illuminate this tale of love, loss, and laughter, the soaring finale of Artistic Director Robert Kelley’s 50th season at TheatreWorks.

“Hilarious and poignant.” — CHICAGO ON STAGE
