THE BOOK OF WILL to be Presented at Swine Palace This Month LSU School of Theatre will present The Book of Will at Swine Palace Theater this month. 

Without William Shakespeare, we wouldn’t have literary masterpieces like Romeo and Juliet. But without Henry Condell and John Heminges, we would have lost half of Shakespeare’s plays forever! After the death of their friend and mentor, the two actors are determined to compile the First Folio and preserve the words that shaped their lives. They’ll just have to borrow, beg, and band together to get it done. Amidst the noise and color of Elizabethan London, The Book of Will finds an unforgettable true story of love, loss, and laughter, and sheds new light on a man you may think you know.

THE BOOK OF WILL by Lauren Gunderson, directed by George Judy
