The Bard-en-Seine Readings
Throughout 2014, in honour of the 450th anniversary of Shakespeare’s birth, we’re hosting the Bard-en-Seine Readings. The goal is simple: to revisit and celebrate some of Shakespeare’s most loved plays. So, once a month, we will be hosting informal read-throughs in the library, which will be recorded and sent out as podcasts in this very newsletter.
For July, the play will be A Midsummer Night’s Dream and the reading will take place on Thursday 31st at 6pm, in the library.
If you’d like to take part, please email Milly Unwin at email@example.com, and tell her whether you’d prefer a larger or a smaller role. Parts will be allocated on a first-come first-served basis, and we’ll let you know a week in advance of the reading whether you have a role. No preparation necessary, and we’ll provide the scripts. Please note that, due to space restrictions, the Bard-en-Seine Readings will only be open to those taking part.
The allocated plays for each remaining month of 2014 are as follows:
August – Othello
September – The Merchant of Venice
October – Hamlet
November – Twelfth Night
December – Anthony and Cleopatra
Please check the newsletter and website each month for dates and times, and details of how to apply.
