Much Ado About Wil
Set in 1590, Wil introduces 26-year-old Wil Shakespeare-a
promising but floundering playwright with a wife, three children, a
ballooning mortgage and a brand-new play, Romeo & Juliet, that
just closed on opening night at the Stratford Upon Avon Supper
Theater. Things look bleak for the young playwright when his trusted
agent, Bernie Shylock, lands Wil his first professional gig: running
the summer stock theatre at Elsinore Castle in Denmark. Upon arrival
in Denmark, Wil finds a group of less-than-desirable thespians,
thieves and murderers and realizes that putting on a respectable
performance of Romeo & Juliet might be the least of his worries.
The cast includes Eric McCormack, Oliver Dench, Lucy Peacock, Will
Swenson, Colm Feore, Jonathan Scarfe, Zuleikha Robinson, Luke
Humphrey, Geraint Wyn Davies, Andre Sills, Christopher Shyer, Erin
Karpluk and Kendra Leigh, among many others.
