With razor-sharp dialogue and exceptional wit, this explosive political thriller explores the intersection of art, politics, morality, truth, and history. In 1606 the prime minister to King James I commissions Shagspere (yes, it’s him) to write a play about the recent Gunpowder Plot, an attempt to blow up the king and his court. The king simply requests that some flattering dialogue – and witches be added. The award-winning Equivocation deftly reveals the cat-and-mouse games in politics and art, and the craft of learning how to speak the truth in difficult times.
