Theater today owes a great debt of gratitude to the collected plays of William Shakespeare.
But what if there had never been a collection in the first place?
Gunderson weaves the tale of Will’s fellow actors - Henry Condell and John Heminges - as they beg, borrow, and band together to compile the First Folio of Shakespeare’s works; to preserve the words that shaped their lives…and ours today.
A remarkable true story of love, loss, and laughter,
The Book of Will sheds new light on the man we think we know.
