Get your tickets for The Book of Will by Lauren Gunderson, presented by Flashback Theater Co. (FbTC) and CHI Saint Joseph Health London. The Book of Will will run for six live performances on selected dates fromThursday, February 16 to Sunday, February 26, 2023. Tickets can be purchased beginning Tuesday, January 16, 2023 at:

The Book of Will tells the story of two men who, after the death of their friend and mentor, William Shakespeare, compile the words that shaped their lives into what we now know as The First Folio. Without their dedication to their friend, the world would have lost classics like Romeo and Juliet, Hamlet, and A Midsummer Night’s Dream. The pair will have to borrow, beg, and band together to complete the monumental task. Set in the noise and color of Elizabethan London, The Book of Will tells an unforgettable true story of love, loss, and laughter, shedding new light on a man you think you know.

For Shakespeare lovers, The Book of Will runs about one hour and forty-five minutes, and includes one fifteen minute intermission. The play is suitable for ages 14 and up. Audiences are encouraged to arrive half an hour before the curtain time in order to have plenty of time to find their seats and settle in for this trip to the past, exploring Shakespeare through the eyes of his friends and rivals.

As with most Flashback Theater shows, all seating is assigned at the time of ticket purchase. With just over 60 seats available for each of the six performances, getting a ticket early is highly recommended for all patrons.
