Equivocation

The Edge Off-Broadway
1133 West Catalpa Avenue Chicago

In the aftermath of the failed Gunpowder Plot of 1605 to assassinate King James I and destroy the British Parliament, playwright William Shagspeare (after a contemporary spelling of the Bard's name) is commissioned by the powerful Lord Robert Cecil to write the "true historie" of the plot...to the particular specifications of His Majesty. As they work to unravel the truth behind the conspiracy, navigating clandestine meetings, betrayals, and brawls, the King's Men acting company tests just how far they're willing to go for each other and to speak truth to power. When duty to country and pursuit of the truth collide, the Globe Theatre becomes the stage for Shag's darkest play yet - and the battle for a nation's soul. Fact, fiction, politics and comedy all vie for control in this critically acclaimed dramatic account of an historical national crisis.

Presented by Idle Muse Theatre Company
