Towngate Theatre presents The Book of Will by Lauren Gunderson March 18-20 & 25-26. Curtain is at 8pm. A 3pm matinee takes place Sunday, March 20.

After the death of their mentor, actors Henry Condell and John Heminges are determined to compile William Shakespeare’s First Folio and preserve his words forever. They’ll just have to borrow, beg and band together to get it done. The Book of Will finds an unforgettable true story of love, loss and laughter while shedding new light on a man you may think you know.

Admission is $14 ($12.50 OI members). Purchase tickets online or call 304-242-7700.
