Reading Shakespeare plays aloud not only offers a communal way to enjoy these great works but promotes a deeper understanding of Shakespeare’s poetry and wordplay. No acting experience is required to participate—just bring your voice and your own copy of the play!    

This event is completely free with advance registration. If you think you’d like to read aloud, please select the “I’d like to be a reader!” ticket; there are fifteen available. Please bring your own copy of the play. If reader spots are sold out, you are welcome to join the waitlist by selecting the “reader waitlist.” If you would just like to come and listen to the readers, select the “listener” option.  

“Some rise by sin, and some by virtue fall.”  

Viewed today as one of Shakespeare’s “problem plays”, because while the First Folio lists this work as a Comedy, there are troubling aspects in its shifts in mood and theme, Measure for Measure is a fascinating and challenging work for our modern age.
