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 September, the play will be The Merchant of Venice and the reading will take place on Thursday 18th at 6pm, in the library.
If you’d like to take part, please email Milly Unwin at firstname.lastname@example.org, 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:
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.
