Based on one audience suggestion (a title for a play that has yet to be written), the Improvised Shakespeare Company creates a fully improvised Shakespearian masterpiece right before your very eyes! Each of the players has brushed up on his thee’s and thou’s to bring you an evening of off-the-cuff comedy using the language and themes of William Shakespeare. Nothing has been planned out, rehearsed, or written. All of the dialogue is said for the first time, the characters are created as you watch, and if every you’re wondering where the story is going … so are they! The night could reveal a tragedy, comedy, or history. The play is completely improvised, and entirely new!

North Coast Brewing Company will provide program attendees over the age of 21 with complimentary beer, adding to the merriment of the evening.

This event is part of programming related to the Newberry exhibition Creating Shakespeare, which runs from September 23 to December 31, 2016.
