"The Last Will" (Modern Theatre)

After decades of struggle and success in London, William Shakespeare retires to Stratford.  His friend and colleague, Richard Burbage, urges him to return to London and resume playwriting.

Will longs to find forgiveness and make his final testament but is wracked by illness, suspicion, and resentment and begins to act as if he is a character from his own plays. Directed by Steve Maler, this world premiere concludes playwright Robert Brustein’s trilogy on Shakespeare’s life and work, all premiered by Suffolk University.
