  The Lost Shakespeare Play at EP Theater

The Lost Shakespeare Play

EP Theater
1820 S. Halsted Chicago

The Lost Shakespeare Play is based on the true story of a theatrical scandal that hit Richard Brinsley Sheridan's Drury Lane Theatre in the 1790s. A document uncovered by 19-year-old William Henry Ireland is heralded as a lost play by William Shakespeare. The play, entitled Vortigern, causes a sensation in literary circles, and many - experts and laypeople alike - are utterly convinced of its authenticity. But Edmond Malone, the foremost Shakespeare scholar of the day, is not. Malone and Ireland square off onstage in this comedy, each pleading his case as opening night approaches.
