Commonwealth Shakespeare Company and Suffolk University present The Last Will, the final installment Distinguished Scholar in Residence Robert Brustein’s trilogy about the life of William Shakespeare.
The Last Will finds William Shakespeare retired at his country home in Stratford after decades of struggle and success in the city of London.
Presented each season in partnership with the Boston Lawyers Chapter of the Federalists Society and McCarter & English. Shakespeare & the Law features a staged reading of a Shakespeare play (past performances include Othello, The Merchant of Venice and Henry V) performed by local, state and national lawyers, judges and other politicos. The presentation is followed by a panel discussion lead by a moderator.
CSC's touring initiative to local parks. The 2011 summer season features two productions: Shakespeare on Love, a collection of scenes, songs and sonnets from Shakespeare performed by Apprentices enrolled in Summer Apprentice Program, and A Shakespearean Cabaret featuring students from New England Conservatory.
A Boston tradition since 1996, CSC has been presenting fully-staged productions of Shakespeare plays free-of-charge to Boston audiences.
Sponsored by New England Conservatory, Commonwealth Concerts is a series of pre-show concerts featuring a wide range of musical stylings before performances of Shakespeare on the Common.
Special events--including our Annual Gala--held throughout the year to raise funds to support all of CSC's FREE programming.

CSC and Suffolk University present the World Premiere of The Last Will.
The Last Will is the final installment of Suffolk University's Distinguished Scholar in Residence Robert Brustein's trilogy about the life of William Shakespeare.
The Last Will finds William Shakespeare retired at his country home on Stratford after decades of struggle and success in the city of London. In the last stages of a fatal illness, his deteriorating mind obliterates the distinction between fiction and fact, and the playwright begins acting as a character in his own plays. Richard Burbage, leader of Shakespeare's acting company, attempts to persuade him to return to London and to playwriting, as Will wrestles with his suspicions, delusions, family resentments, his longing for forgiveness, and final testaments.
The set design is by Eric Levenson**, costume design by Nancy Leary, lighting design by Eric Southern**, and sound design by David Remedios**.
Performance dates are February 13-24, 2013. Wednesday and Thursdays at 7pm. Fridays at 8pm. Saturdays at 3pm and 8pm. Sundays at 3pm. Opening Night is Friday, February 15th (ticket holders for this evening's performance are invited to a post-show reception with the cast, staff and creative team).
Tickets, at $45 on opening and Saturday nights; $40 general; $30 seniors; and $10 students, are available by calling 1-800-440-7654. The Modern Theatre is located at 525 Washington St. in Boston's Theatre District.
