Popejoy Presents: Book of Will by Lauren Gunderson

The performance takes place in the 1600s. Shakespeare's plays were being stolen and rewritten after he passed away before copyright laws were formed and enforced. John Heminges and Henry Condell, two actors who were friends with Shakespeare, collected approximately 36 accurate versions of his plays into a single volume, which was known as the First Folio of 1623.
