Complete Readings of William Shakespeare

UPCOMING READINGS

KING JOHN
TBD
Sponsored by Lowry Lab

The Complete Readings of William Shakespeare will present every play, poem, and sonnet (along with a sampling of the apocrphya!) in a series of 45 staged readings from 2009-2011. It represents the unique opportunity to experience in performance all of Shakespeare’s masterpieces, including those rarely or never seen, in a way that hasn’t been possible since the King’s Men originally performed them 400 years ago.
