Remember, remember, the 5th of November
The Gunpowder Treason and plot;
I see no reason why Gunpowder Treason
Should ever be forgot.
History has always been written by the victors. In Equivocation, a play by Bill Cain, this concept is explored to the full when it’s imposed on the world’s most widely-read historian: Shakespeare. Half Shakespearean drama, half Quentin Tarantino historical fiction, Equivocation starts with the premise: what if Shakespeare was contracted to write the official version of the Gunpowder Plot, and what if the Gunpowder Treason was all a government set up?
Directed by Marta Roncada, Equivocation by Bill Cain will be performed in the Frear Ensemble Theatre on Friday, March 21st at 8pm, Saturday March 22nd at 2pm and 8pm, and Sunday, March 23rd at 2pm.
Performed by: Simon Bloch, Casey Ferrara, Cooper Harrington-Fei, Nathan Siegel, Elliot Weiser, Morgan Williams
