In 1623, an apprentice typesetter works on the First Folio of Shakespeare. But as he becomes absorbed in this delicate task, 17-year old John is processing a trauma: a short time ago, he witnessed his mother’s execution at the hands of the state for witchcraft.

With the support of Isaac, the print shop supervisor, he soon gains greater clarity about how his mother’s narrative was taken from her. But his pain is exacerbated by the daily process of deciphering ‘Macbeth’ from a confusing manuscript…

A play about the hidden fingerprints of history – produced in conjunction with the 400th anniversary of the publication of the First Folio – that asks how much we have really changed since the 17th Century.
