Shakespeare Goes to War
It's the 1970s and Jack goes off to high school unsure of himself and his place in the world. There he meets his great inspiration, an English teacher named Harry Smith. Harry introduces him to Shakespeare, acting, and the magic of theatre.
Harry also shares his experiences of being a prisoner of war in a German prison camp during World War II. There he met his own surprising inspiration: the crafty and deceptive Colonel Klambach, camp commandant.
The play is set in the P.O.W. camp in 1944 and at Jack's high school in 1978.
1978 was the time of the notorious Brigg's Initiative. The Brigg's Initiative, a ballot proposition designed to fire all gay public school teachers, threatens Harry's career. As Harry faces his own challenges in the past and the present, Jack learns that he might be able to help Harry, through his use of a surprising weapon  Shakespeare.
