What if Shakespeare’s works had been lost forever? After the death of their friend and mentor, 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. Lauren Gunderson, playwright of last season’s runaway hit Miss Bennet: Christmas at Pemberley, weaves a hilarious and heartfelt story inspired by the true story of Shakespeare’s First Folio.
