    Two men of honor both claim the right to Norway’s crown, but wily Bishop Nicholas stymies their dreams, pursuing his own mysterious ends. This lean, swift-paced version of Ibsen’s turbulent tale dissects the timeless motives that the political and powerful must ever ask themselves—do I do what I do for the greater good or for personal glory?—and explores the nature of power and personal ambition, the obligation of leadership and the search for national unity.

    He was born in 1564, but historians lose track of Will Shakespeare until around 1590. This play gleefully jumps in to fill in the gaps of his so-called "lost years." Will is a 21-year-old dreamer, the father of three and quite jobless. His wife is distracted by the amorous attentions of their neighbor. Poverty, lust and gender confusion rock everyone's boat, but, in the end, fortune smiles on the aspiring young poet. Learn More
