In celebration of the 400th Anniversary of Shakespeare’s First Folio, Shakespeare North Playhouse will be offering 400 theatre tickets to see The Book of Will for only 1p! 

This year marks the 400th anniversary of Shakespeare’s First Folio, which is the first collected edition of Shakespeare's plays, containing 36 out of some 38 Shakespeare plays. Collated and published in 1623, seven years after Shakespeare’s death, only 18 of the plays had previously been printed during his lifetime. Without the First Folio some of Shakespeare’s most revered works may not have survived and would not be known today. 

To celebrate this, Shakespeare North Playhouse will be offering theatre goers the chance to bag themselves tickets to The Book of Will for only 1p- the same price as it would’ve been in The Bard’s time! 

The Book of Will is a wonderfully witty, funny and fast-paced play that tells the story of the First Folio’s conception. To save Shakespeare’s works for the ages, the Kings Men hatch a near-impossible plan to collect his words on paper, setting them off on a race against time through London. Their hearts are on the line and those they love are counting on them – to maybe leave a legacy that will last forever. 

By using the code PENNY4PIT at the checkout theatre goers can grab a 1p ticket to the following performances (please note tickets are capped at 1 penny ticket per person): 

Thursday 19th October at 7:00pm
Friday 20th October at 7:00pm 
Saturday 21st October at 7:00pm
Monday 23rd October at 7:00pm
