Description

Synopsis: Set in 17th century England, “The Book of Will” is the charming and funny story of Shakespeare’s First Folio. Henry Condell and John Heminges, members of the King’s Men and close friends of the recently deceased bard, witness an awful staging of “Hamlet.” After commiserating with fellow player Richard Burbage, the friends realize they must collect and preserve Shakespeare’s authentic works before they’re lost to history.
