"3.5 STARS. Well-honed adaptation... smart and supple direction... high-spirited cast... provides an uplifting homage to how common people find uncommon reserves of poetry, courage, wit and honor in times of unrest."  –Chicago Tribune
 
"This animated adventure story, filled with intrigue, passion and wild sword fights will thrill even the most jaded Shakespeare scholar and will inspire many others to read Blixt’s original novel"  –Chicago Theatre Review
 
"With strong direction and fight design, a great story and two excellent leading men, Her Majesty’s Will is a wonderful choice for a hot summer night."  –Chicago Theater Beat

Young William Shakespeare is hiding from the law in rural Lancashire, languishing as a simple school master. Christopher Marlowe is living the high life as a spy for the Crown. When a dastardly plot to assassinate the Queen draws these two unforgettable wits together, Will is swept up in a world of intrigue, treachery, and mayhem in an adventure that will define the rest of his life — if he can only manage to save Her Majesty. An irreverent comedy that imagines Shakespeare’s “lost years” as a rousing romp through the streets and across the stages of Elizabethan London, in a world premiere based on the 2013 novel by Chicago author David Blixt.

A world premiere based on the novel by David Blixt
Adapted by Robert Kauzlaric
