CSC and Suffolk University present the World Premiere of The Last Will.
February 13-24, 2013
The Modern Theatre at Suffolk University
The Last Will is the final installment of Suffolk University's Distinguished Scholar in Residence Robert Brustein's trilogy about the life of William Shakespeare.
The Last Will finds William Shakespeare retired at his country home on Stratford after decades of struggle and success in the city of London. In the last stages of a fatal illness, his deteriorating mind obliterates the distinction between fiction and fact, and the playwright begins acting as a character in his own plays. Richard Burbage, leader of Shakespeare's acting company, attempts to persuade him to return to London and to playwriting, as Will wrestles with his suspicions, delusions, family resentments, his longing for forgiveness, and final testaments.
