Her Majesty's Will - A Play
Playwright: Robert Kauzlaric
Based on the novel by: David Blixt
Young William Shakespeare is hiding from the law in rural Lancashire, languishing as a simple school master. Christopher Marlowe is living the high life as a spy for the Crown. When a dastardly plot to assassinate the Queen draws these two unforgettable wits together, Will is swept up in a world of intrigue, treachery, and mayhem in an adventure that will define the rest of his life — if he can only manage to survive it. An irreverent comedy that imagines Shakespeare’s “lost years” as a rousing romp through the streets and across the stages of Elizabethan London, in a world premiere based on the 2012 novel by author David Blixt.
"3.5 STARS. This well-honed adaptation...provides an uplifting homage to how common people find uncommon reserves of poetry, courage, wit and honor in times of unrest." – Chicago Tribune
"This animated adventure story, filled with intrigue, passion and wild sword fights will thrill even the most jaded Shakespeare scholar and inspire many others to read Blixt’s original novel" – Chicago Theatre Review
