It is 1621. Shakespeare’s been dead for seven years. Two passionate thespians struggle to assemble and print the First Folio, the original anthology of Shakespeare’s plays. In this referential work, pinnacle scenes from Shakespearean classics, such as As You Like It, Macbeth, and King Lear, are woven into the birth of the First Folio with charm, wit, and misadventure.
