“You, minion, are too saucy.” 

What happens when you fall in love with your best friend’s girlfriend? A director from the Royal Shakespeare Company called it, “a Shakespearean rom-com with dark edges.” We’ll read one of the first plays Shakespeare wrote. And it’s all about young people in love. 

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 a copy of the play!     

This event is completely free with advance registration. However, if you’d like to support free programming, please consider a donation, which you can include when you register.
