This is not a play about William Shakespeare.
This is the untold story about what happens when the world's most famous playwright leaves behind loyal friends but none of the plays he wrote for them to perform.
This is a story about the strong, feisty women whom history forgot.
This is a story about people who, just like us, find themselves coping with loss, grief, love, and a world that has changed all too quickly.
When Shakespeare's friends decide to gather his scattered masterpieces and bind them together in a book that can be shared with the world, it seems like a crazy idea. But if they want to keep some hack from ruining "Hamlet," a self-serving publisher from pirating the plays, and the clock of time from running out, they'd better undertake their mission with pluck, wit, and hearts full of joy. With hilarity, flirtation, and heartbreak, Elizabethan England is brought into our century as Henry and John pour their hearts into leaving the world a priceless legacy.
