Learning to speak the truth in difficult times is the heart of Bill Cain's award-winning Equivocation, which deftly mixes broad humor with political intrigue for a winning combination. Set in 1605 London, a down-and-out playwright named Shagspeare -- yeah, you know who we're talking about -- receives a commission to write a play promoting the government's version of Guy Fawkes' treasonous plot. As Shag navigates the murky waters between writing a lie or losing his head, his devoted troupe supports him along the way. Exploring the delicate balance in both politics and art, Equivocation is a thought-provoking, funny look at the blurry lines between reality and fiction. Learn More

Attending this event was an unexpectedly challenging experience, with so many of the traditional Shakespearean male characters portrayed by tall females in pantsuits, each equipped with the indispensable cell phone. With no distractions of scenery and props, all the emphasis was on words plus a few symbolic objects and colors. Different, but fascinating!
