|A Gift to the Future|
ABOUT THE SHOW
It is 1623. John Heminges returns to his house on the site of the Globe Theatre with a precious package – the first edition of Wiliiam Shakesepeare’s “Comedies, Histories and Tragedies” which he has just collected from the printer, Isaac Jaggard.
Throughout his working life John had been at William’s side. As he starts to read through the plays, the memories come flooding back – of performances, backstage intrigues, successes and disasters and above all the importance of preserving the writings of a genius who was “not of an age, but for all time” as Ben Jonson so cogently wrote in the introduction to what we now know as; Shakesepeare’s First Folio
