Set in 1605 London, a down-and-out playwright named Shagspeare -- yeah, you know who we're talking about -- receives a commission to write a play promoting the government's version of Guy Fawkes' treasonous plot. As Shag navigates the murky waters between writing a lie or losing his head, his devoted troupe keeps him afloat. Bill Cain's witty and thought-provoking exploration of governmental power and artistic integrity also manages to mix broad humor and tense political intrigue into an award-winning crowd-pleaser. You'll have fun catching all the clever allusions to Shakespeare in this smart, contemporary new look at our greatest playwright when Equivocation comes to Philadelphia's Arden Theatre.
