Equivocation

Synopsis:
This is from the press release: "Bill Cain's new play set in 1605 England begins when King James's right-hand man commissions William Shakespeare to write a new play about the Gunpowder Plot, a recent failed attempt to blow up Parliament and the Monarchy. Equivocation is a bold new look at the greatest playwright ever in a drama whose contemporary parallels are unmistakable and whose laughter is abundant-a work of startling revelations and vibrant theatricality."
