Written by Bill Cain

Summary

In London, in the year 1605, a down-and-out playwright called Shagspeare (yes, it’s him), receives a royal commission to write a play promoting the government’s version of Guy Fawkes’ treasonous Gunpowder Plot. As Shag navigates the dangerous course between writing a lie and losing his soul or writing the truth and losing his head, his devoted theatre troupe helps him negotiate each step along the way. At once an explosive comedy of ideas and a high-stakes political thriller, Bill Cain’s award-winning Equivocation deftly reveals both the cat-and-mouse games of politics and art and the craft of speaking the truth in difficult times.
