Without William Shakespeare, we wouldn’t have literary masterpieces like Romeo and Juliet. But without actors Henry Condell and John Heminges, we would have lost half of Shakespeare’s plays forever! So, the King’s Men are getting the band back together. The goal: to gather the Bard’s scattered masterpieces and bind them to each other, and to history. It’s a grand feat, to be sure. Especially for a community of actors who may know all the ins and outs of iambic pentameter, but next to nothing about binding books. Even so, they undertake their mission with pluck and wit and hearts full of joy. It’s a theatrical, beat-the-clock race to save a legacy, offering some of Shakespeare’s greatest hits spoken by your favorite players.
