The Book of Will in Austin


Submit Updates Images | Videos | Cast | Edit

Three years after Shakespeares death, his plays are constantly pirated and performed in inaccurate versions that tarnish the bard's legacy. Henry Condell and John Heminges, Shakespeare's friends and actors in the Kings Men, are determined to make sure true versions of the plays survive by compiling the First Folio, recapturing the words that shaped their lives. Guided by a sense of genuine loyalty, admiration, and what really matters in life, this determined lot will beg, borrow, and steal to make sure Shakespeare's Folio survives. THE BOOK OF WILLunequivocally announces Gunderson as a playwright with whom to be reckoned. It is, quite frankly, one of the best plays I have ever seen. It will bring tears of both laughter and sorrow to all but the most jaded audience members eyes. It is, in a word, a triumph. Boulder Weekly (CO).Directed by Lara Toner Haddock. Starring Huck Huckaby, Ben Wolfe, Joey Banks, Marie Fahlgren, Boni Hester, Stephen Mercantel, Toby Minor, Tom Parker, Cyndi Williams, and Owen Ziegle.

BWW Review: TINY BEAUTIFUL THINGS at Austin Playhouse
February 13, 2020

In TINY BEAUTIFUL THINGS, a woman sits on a couch typing away advice to strangers she will never meet in person. The three strangers that invite themselves into her living room represent an array of characters that write anonymous letters to Dear Sugar. The play masterfully connects them all through an insightful reflection of the meaning of love, life, and happiness, rooted in personal experiences, empathy, and compassion for one another.

BWW Review: Recommended Viewing (and reading): THE BOOK OF WILL Delights at Austin Playhouse
June 17, 2019

You can't write about a work of Shakespeare or about a work about Shakespeare without quoting one of his most famous (and theatrically appropriate) lines: "All the world's a stage, and all the men and women merely players." But on the stage of the Austin Playhouse, the men and women aren't merely players. They are the driving force behind bringing THE BOOK OF WILL to life with vivacious enthusiasm and well-honed skill.
