An extremely smart script and a spot-on cast! Everything came together beautifully and was historical, contemporary, and timeless all at once. A very thought-provoking look at Shakespeare, his Company, and the context that gave rise to his great works. The lingering questions about the Gunpowder Plot and political maneuverings in England at that time are resonant and haunting. Equivocation is a powerful work, and I would not be surprised to read about this production on Broadway someday soon!
Join Shakespeare and his winsome troupe in this fantastic new tale that satiates Bard-loving purists and advocates of groundbreaking theater alike. The runaway hit of the Oregon Shakespeare Festival and a sure-to-be classic, Equivocation pits the poetry of the world’s greatest playwright against the word of his King. Written in modern English with playful allusions to some of the Bard’s greatest works, Equivocation’s gripping narrative, keen humor and political intrigue culminate in what critics are calling “dazzling,” “a masterful work” and “the must-see play of the season.”
