THE BOOK OF WILL
By Lauren Gunderso
After the death of their friend and mentor, Shakespeare’s actors are determined to compile the First Folio and preserve the words that shaped their lives. They’ll just have to borrow, beg, and band together to get it done. Amidst the noise and color of Elizabethan London, The Book of Will tells an unforgettable true story of love, loss, and laughter, and sheds new light on a man you may think you know.
We are suspending our Season Three immediately due to the effects of the Corona virus. It is our intention to present both The Children and The Book of Will as part of YRT's Season Four. When we decide on dates, we will let you know.
Thanks for your support in Season Three! The response to Rabbit Hole and The Children has reassured us that we are choosing powerful stories that Billings wants to see. As we plan our fourth season, we promise to search for equally powerful stories to add to these two shows.
If you have season tickets or have purchased tickets for the postponed performances of The Children and The Book of Will, we will be communicating directly with you via our ticketing platform about rescheduled performances. In the meantime, thanks for being part of the YRT family and we'll see you in the fall! Keep an eye out for some fun projects we have in mind to fill the time between now and then. Stay safe, friends.
