“Never were finer snares for womens’ honesties
Than are devis’d in these days; no spider’s web’s
Made of a daintier thread, than are now practis’d
To catch love’s flesh-fly by the silver wing”

A staged reading by professional actors from The Shakespeare Project of Chicago, directed by Michelle Shupe and Kelly Lynn Hogan.

An informative talk by a dramaturg begins fifteen minutes before the performance, which is followed by a question-and-answer session with the director and cast. The Shakespeare Project was founded in 1993 and has performed at the Newberry Library since 2003.

Download a PDF flyer for this spring’s Shakespeare Project of Chicago programs at the Newberry, to post and distribute, and explore the Newberry’s collection of early Shakespeare editions.

Cosponsored by the Center for Renaissance Studies and the Department of Public Engagement.

Excuse our dust!!!

Beginning January 2018 the Newberry is undertaking renovation of much of the ground floor. Ruggles Hall will not be affected, but please check this link frequently for the latest conditions - which exterior doors are open or closed, where to find an accessible entrance, which restrooms are available, etc.
