Festival Details - "Shakespeare Allowed!"...

The Nashville Shakespeare Festival invites you to read every play Shakespeare wrote, out loud in a reading circle. Once a month, gather together at the Nashville Public Library to read one of the Bard’s plays, starting with the first on July 7th 2018, and ending with the last approximately three years later.

Whoever wants to read out loud can choose to sit at the table. There will be additional seating available for anyone who wants to read along silently. (Although you might be asked to pipe in for crowd scenes!)  They meet at 11:50am and the reading starts at 12pm. There will be a 15 minute break in the middle of each play. During the break, anyone outside of the circle who would like a turn to read out loud may pull up a chair. Some copies of the play will be available, but please bring your own if possible.Everyone is welcome!

Readings will always be free and open to the public. Hearing these plays read aloud will give you more insight into the depth of Shakespeare’s works. All voices and all dialects are welcome! This is intended to be a fun time, so bring your sense of humor.Takes place the first Saturday of every month starting July 7, 2018 and going forward for the next 3 years, until all 37 of Shakespeare’s plays are done!
