Nearly seven years ago, Seven Stages Shakespeare Company started a series of Shakespeare-in-a-pub readings with Beer in One Hand, Script in the Other. I jumped in on the third reading – it was King Lear – and I’ve been eagerly participating ever since.

To celebrate the completion of their run through the canon in these seven seasons, 7 Stages has arranged a ShakesBEERience Encore: one play from each season, chosen by their audience!

This Sunday, June 9, from 10am till 7pm an ensemble of 23 ShakesBEERience veterans will perform all 7 chosen plays, one after the other!

I just printed my script:

the printed script for ShakesBEERience Encore
It is heavy.

That’s 159 pages of double-column Shakespeare.

I shan’t tell you which roles I’m playing (come and see!), but every actor is in every play (from lead roles to spear carriers).

The venue is the idyllic, heroic beer garden at the Throwback Brewery.

Tickets are going fast! I hope you’ll come & see what is surely going to be an epic undertaking.
