ABOUT GOD’S SPIES
A lawyer, a sex worker, and a playwright walk into a room. And then they stay. Shakespeare (Shax) runs London’s most popular theatre, but now he’s forced to shelter inside due to an outbreak of plague. With the theatres closed and no distractions, what’s left to be done is to write a new masterpiece. Assisted by two unlikely companions, Shax (and Bill Cain, author of four previous Next Act productions) explore the mysteries of life, love, and death while navigating the complexities of a world under quarantine lockdown.
