New Jersey Premiere

September 16 – October 4, 2015

Described in Variety as “one of the most bracingly intelligent, sizzlingly theatrical American plays in a decade,” this fictional imagining of the “birth” of one of Shakespeare’s most famous tragedies will not only intrigue Shakespeare fans, but history buffs, conspiracy theorists, political junkies, and anyone who loves a great, wild tale. When the bard and his troupe of players receive a royal commission to dramatize the events surrounding the infamous Gunpowder Plot, the artist must confront the demons of his past, his present, and his obligations to truth, artistic integrity, and his two families– his actual one and his theatrical one.
