“All the world’s a stage,
And all the men and women merely players;
They have their exits and their entrances,
And one man in his time plays many parts …”

A staged reading by professional actors from The Shakespeare Project of Chicago, directed by J. R. Sullivan, of the Pearl Theatre Company in New York.

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.
