Shake-scene at the Concord Free Public Library, featuring Stephen Collins and Poornima Kirby

June 1 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm

- Free

Join Shakspearian performers Stephen Collins and Poornima Kirby for a rollicking ride through some of the Bard’s finest poetry and most compelling characters! The event will take place in the new Goodwin Forum at the Main Library, at 129 Main St. in Concord on Wednesday, June 1 at 6:30 p.m.

Featuring scenes and monologues from some of Shakespeare’s best known plays, including Macbeth, Taming of the Shrew, Henry V, and Julius Caesar, this original compilation digs into universal themes such as the price of power, the risks of falling in love, and the what to do with a murder weapon.

The 1-hour show also includes a lively “sonnet duel,” plenty of playful banter, and fascinating historical context; and includes a Question and Answer session at the end. Come immerse yourself in Shakespeare’s wit, wordplay, and timeless verse!

Registration required. Free and open to all. This event is sponsored by the Friends of the Concord Free Public Library. For more information on library programs, please visit www.concordlibrary.org.
