Two elderly Shakespearean actors are waiting for “Will”. While waiting, they talk about their long career of performing various Shakespearean characters. They cherish their memories of having worked with important directors and actors in celebrated Shakespearean productions. They regret that their career must soon end because they are old. Their conversation is filled with famous lines from Shakespeare's plays, and they begin to play a game of guessing the sources for Shakespeare’s quotes. They quote from all the forty plays of Shakespeare’s, but “Will” does not seem to show up, and eventually one of the actors passes away. Left alone, the remaining actor realizes what “Will” really means. The play is based on Shakespeare’s ideas of memento mori and theatrum mundi and explores the spirit of acting in a somewhat Beckettian manner.
