Short
Synopsis

A psychological thriller based on actual events, 9 CIRCLES tells the story of an American soldier on trial for his life. The young soldier—honorably discharged but then accused of an unspeakable war crime in Iraq—Daniel Reeves is forced to navigate a Dantesque labyrinth of commanding officers, public defenders, lawyers, preachers and military psychiatrists. By turns shocking, mesmerizing and bitingly funny, 9 CIRCLES accompanies this astonishing young solider on a tour de force journey to a shattering conclusion in which the infinite size and tremendous power of a young man's soul is revealed.

"It's a dense, fiercely performed and provocative journey…a gritty, at times revealing trip." —San Francisco Chronicle. "The power and punch of 9 CIRCLES is undeniable. Cain's script zeroes in on one soldier's story and leaves us feeling the inescapable historic and emotional weight of the entire war. This is theater that shakes your foundation and leaves you breathless." —Bay Area Backstage.

Synopsis

England, 1605: A terrorist plot to assassinate King James I and blow Parliament to kingdom come with 36 barrels of devilish gunpowder! Shagspeare (after a contemporary spelling of the Bard's name) is commissioned by Robert Cecil, the prime minister, to write the "true historie" of the plot. And it must have witches! The King wants witches! But as Shag and the acting company of the Globe, under the direction of the great Richard Burbage, investigate the plot, they discover that the King's version of the story might, in fact, be a cover-up. Shag and his actors are confronted with the ultimate moral and artistic dilemma. Speak truth to power—and perhaps lose their heads? Or take the money and lie? Is there a third option—equivocation? A high-stakes political thriller with contemporary resonances, EQUIVOCATION gallops from the great Globe to the Tower of London to the halls of Parliament to the heart of Judith, Shag's younger daughter, who finds herself unexpectedly at the very heart of the political, dramatic and—ultimately—human mystery.

"…an ingeniously witty yet sad and chilling drama." —CurtainUp. "No need to equivocate: Bill Cain's EQUIVOCATION…is one of the most bracingly intelligent, sizzlingly theatrical American plays in a decade…it's an experience no serious theatergoer will want to miss…the text is destined for a long life in professional venues and elsewhere." —Variety.
