LIVES OF SHAKESPEARE Trilogy Set For Readings At The Players
The Lives of Shakespeare will be celebrated with staged readings on successive evenings of three new plays by Mary Jane Schaefer.
Presented by The Players Foundation and The Shakespeare Guild on September 25, 26, and 27, the readings will be hosted at The Players, New York's storied social club for the dramatic arts and its patrons.
Shakespeare Rising is a portrait of the artist as a young man; Judith Shakespeare Has Her Say is a feminist view of a flawed but beloved father; and Shakespeare and the Heart's Desire is a 'vanity of human wishes' account of Shakespeare's devotion to the beautiful young man of the sonnets.
Schaefer's three plays are directed by Mark Graham and developed at The Theatre Artists Workshop.
Tickets are free and available to the public. Reservations are required at email@example.com for entrance to the clubhouse and events. Each of the three evening events will begin at 7:00 p.m. at The Players, 16 Gramercy Park South, New York City. Attendees must adhere to the club dress code.
