by Bill Cain
"Enormously smart...a snap, crackle, pop production!"
"[An] immensely entertaining ode to art, politics and the perils of negotiating both."
In London in the year 1605, a down-and-out playwright called Shagspeare (yes, it’s him) receives a royal commission to write a play promoting the government’s version of Guy Fawkes’ treasonous Gunpowder Plot. As Shag navigates the dangerous course between writing a lie and losing his soul, or writing the truth and losing his head, his devoted theatre troupe helps him negotiate each step along the way. At once an explosive comedy of ideas and a high-stakes political thriller, Bill Cain’s award-winning EQUIVOCATION deftly reveals the cat-and-mouse games in politics and art, and the craft of learning how to speak the truth in difficult times.
