Bill Cain's witty and thought-provoking exploration of governmental power and artistic integrity also manages to mix broad humor and tense political intrigue into an award-winning crowd-pleaser. 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.

Equivocation cleverly closes out Theatricum Botanicum's season-long salute to the Bard's 450th birthday. Learn More
