Shakespeare Reader’s Theatre is an open event (all are welcome; no previous experience is required) designed to give people the opportunity to read aloud the works of the great bard and to do some acting in a company of ones peers. This year, our Shakespeare Reader’s Theatre event will be Saturday, February 17th in the upstairs room at the Woodridge Public Library, 1-3 PM.
We’ll be reading/performing King Lear. If people have tablets or large phones, they are welcome to get the free e-book and use that; or there will be some copies of King Lear available in print.
From Wikipedia: King Lear is a tragedy written by William Shakespeare. It depicts the gradual descent into madness of the title character, after he disposes of his kingdom giving bequests to two of his three daughters based on their flattery of him, bringing tragic consequences for all.
