About the Play:

EQUIVOCATION
By Bill Cain
Directed by Craig Hower
August 4-19, 2017
Fridays & Saturdays at 8:00pm

England, 1605: A terrorist plot to assassinate King James I and blow Parliament to kingdom come with 36 barrels of devilish gunpowder! Shagspeare (after a contemporary spelling of the Bard’s name) is commissioned by Robert Cecil, the prime minister, to write the “true historie” of the plot. And it must have witches! The King wants witches! But as Shag and the acting company of the Globe, under the direction of the great Richard Burbage, investigate the plot, they discover that the King’s version of the story might, in fact, be a cover-up. Shag and his actors are confronted with the ultimate moral and artistic dilemma. Speak truth to power—and perhaps lose their heads? Or take the money and lie? Is there a third option—equivocation? A high-stakes political thriller with contemporary resonances, EQUIVOCATION gallops from the great Globe to the Tower of London to the halls of Parliament to the heart of Judith, Shag’s younger daughter, who finds herself unexpectedly at the very heart of the political, dramatic and—ultimately—human mystery.

“No need to equivocate: Bill Cain’s EQUIVOCATION…is one of the most bracingly intelligent, sizzlingly theatrical American plays in a decade…it’s an experience no serious theatergoer will want to miss…the text is destined for a long life in professional venues and elsewhere.” —Variety.

2017 Season Announcement

The Hard Bargain Players are pleased to announce the 2017 Season!

The season kicks off with a special one-night-only benefit performance of a largely autobiographical play about the rise of the HIV/AIDS crisis in New York City. Some will be familiar with the story from the TV film of the same name. Next up is a Shakespeare-style play about telling the truth in difficult times. Audition information for this show will be posted soon! In September, we offer an eloquent and haunting tale of growing up, in a superbly theatrical and sensitive work that will appeal to children and adults alike. The season will close with a modern-day drama in which the characters tell tales with supernatural and spooky twists.

Come join us in the woods for what is sure to be a fascinating season of theater!
