Bill Cain’s play set in 1606 England begins when King James’ right hand man commissions William Shakespeare to write a new play about the Gunpowder Plot, a recent failed attempt to blow up Parliament and the Monarchy. EQUIVOCATION is a bold new look at the greatest playwright ever in a drama whose contemporary parallels are unmistakable and whose laughter is abundant – a work of startling revelations and vibrant theatricality.
