In dark times, the most treacherous weapon is the truth. London, 1605: The worlds of King James and the Gunpowder Plot collide with William Shakespeare and his renowned theatrical troupe in a startling cat-and-mouse game of politics and art. Commissioned by the throne to create a calculated piece of propaganda, The Bard and his actors must find a way to please the king while avoiding both the gallows and eternal damnation. Bill Cain's high-stakes political thriller reveals the complexities of the truth, the perils of compromise and the terrible consequences of equivocation in "one of the most bracingly intelligent, sizzlingly theatrical American plays in a decade" (Variety).
