The plaintiff, Karen Erickson, sued Trinity Theaters for failure to pay royalties for three of her works: Much Ado About Shakespeare, The Theatre Time Machine, and Prairie Voices: Tales from Illinois.

The second play is based on Native American folk tales, while the third draws from Illinois state history.
