Ms. Rabbitoff, an insane Francis Bacon enthusiast, poses as a substitute teacher and takes an AP English class hostage in an attempt to convince them that Bacon was the real genius behind Shakespeare's plays. By acting out imagined versions of Shakespearean plays (sometimes hilariously blended with other great works of literature), Rabbitoff and the students battle it out to prove who knows more about the literary canon. Only the students can defend Shakespeare's great name, and fight for their right to attend their next class.
