The Best way to read Shakespeare's plays is out loud – and with friends!

The Tennessee Stage Company and Shakespeare On The Square invite everyone to read Shakespeare's plays with them – out loud!

On the second Saturday of each month they will gather to read one of the plays of William Shakespeare. The August reading (August 11) is Cymbaline, one of the late plays that are classified as Romances since they don't fit neatly into any category.

Readings are at the Lawson McGee Library at 2:00 p.m. and are free and open to the public. Hearing these plays read aloud offers much more insight into the depths of Shakespeare's work.

There will be twelve chairs set up and whoever wants to read out loud can choose one of the twelve chairs. There will be additional seating for anyone who wants to read along silently. We will take a fifteen minute break in the middle of each play. Some copies of the play will be available but please bring your own if possible.

All voices, all dialects are welcome. Plays are read for the joy of reading them and to hear and discover more about the plays that have not yet been performed by Shakespeare On The Square.

The Tennessee Stage Company is supported by the Arts & Heritage Fund and WUOT 91fm.
