William Shakespeare Lives
Shakespeare in Portland welcomes former Artistic Director of Chicago's Duplicity Ensemble, Nathan Wonder, to perform his award-winning play William Shakespeare Lives at Portland's Imago Theatre. Both performances are at 7pm on Sunday, September 30 and Sunday, October 7.

The full title of the play is William Shakespeare Lives; or, William Shakespeare, a 33 year-old playwright living in Vancouver, Washington, has just opened his new play, Titus Andronicus, and it was not well-received; a comedy in three acts. A wonderful take on Shakespeare that brings the Bard in the room with us, beer in hand, talking about the struggles of creating live theater in today's age.

This contemporary - and unapologetically vulgar - William Shakespeare has recently lost his job, his girlfriend, and he has just opened a wildly unsuccessful production of his new play, Titus Andronicus. This confluence of unfortunate events prompts him to call this audience together so he can air out his troubles. Still youthful, undiscovered, and unappreciated, William shows sparks of his brilliance yet to come while he works out his craft in the town's humblest venues. But can he overcome this series of disheartening setbacks?
