“Tis time to fear when tyrants seem to kiss.”

A theatrical reading by professional actors from The Shakespeare Project of Chicago, directed by J. R. Sullivan.

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 year’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.
