Character Analysis

(Avoiding Spoilers)

Overview... a charismatic playwright with writer’s block. Though auditions are well underway for Romeo and Ethel, the Pirate’s Daughter, Will isn’t eager to reveal he’s barely even begun writing the script. And it doesn’t help matters when he’s distracted even further by an aristocratic young woman named Viola De Lesseps who snuck into his auditions. Then again, maybe she’s just the inspiration he needs.

Personality... beguiling, brooding, and brilliant. Though he doesn’t have fame or fortune to his name, Will is something of an Elizabethan playboy. Far more swashbuckler than scholar, Will believes the only way to capture life on the page is to live a life worth capturing.
