Read Shakespeare's Plays - Out Loud

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

Once a month, beginning October 8, 2011, Shakespeare's works will be read out loud at Lawson McGhee Library in downtown Knoxville.

Conducted by the Tennessee Stage Company and Shakespeare On the Square, this literary event is free and will be a lot of fun.

Readings are at the Lawson McGee Library on the second Saturday of each month. Hearing these plays read aloud offers much more insight into the depths of Shakespeare's work. Everyone is invited to participate -- all voices, all dialects.

The readings begin at 2:00 p.m. Twelve chairs will be set up and whoever wants to read out loud can choose one of the twelve chairs. Additional seating will be provided for anyone who wants to read along silently. There will be a fifteen minute break in the middle of each play. Some copies of the play will be available but bring your own, if possible.

The first play to be read out loud will be "The Two Gentlemen of Verona" one of Shakespeare's very early comedies. Those who attend the first reading will get to help plan the rest of the series.

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.

Supporters of the event are Arts & Heritage Fund and WUOT 93FM.
