EQUIVOCATION by Bill Cain. In 2009, the Oregon Shakespeare Festival premiered this fascinating take on the moral and artistic dilemma faced by Shakespeare (Shag), as he is commissioned to create a "true history" of a plot to kill King James I in 1605. It begins to look as if the true history may, in fact, be a government cover-up. What to do? Create a play to order, take the money and lie, or tell the truth and face execution, or possibly, equivocate? This played to sold-out houses in Ashland and went on to major productions around the country. Not a day goes by that we don't have requests for the script. It's published at last!
