    Oklahoma Shakespeare in the Park: The Book of Will

    Oklahoma Shakespeare in the Park: The Book of Will

    Details

    The Book of Will

    by Lauren Gunderson

    director, Rex Daugherty

    August 8 – 31, 2019

    Shakespeare on the Paseo

    recommended for ages 13 & up

    William Shakespeare’s been dead for three years. His closest friends and fellow actors deeply miss him and his beautiful plays. When a pirated, badly botched Hamlet (“To be or not to be, there’s the point . . .”) plays on a nearby stage, they realize Shakespeare’s lines are disappearing into the forgetful memory of time. What they need is a book—a definitive copy of his original plays, but to make one, they’ll have to battle an unscrupulous publisher, a boozy poet laureate and their own mortality. Lauren Gunderson’s look at Shakespeare’s First Folio is a lively, funny, poignant love letter to theatre and the printed word.
