Innisfree This Week (4/21-4/27) – Open, Shakespeare, Truitt, Loseff, & Walkabout

Innisfree This Week:

Tuesday April 22 at 7PM: Weekly Open Poetry Reading hosted by Asa Lott.

Wednesday April 23rd at 7PM: William Shakespeare’s Birthday

Shakespeare’s Birthday Celebration!

In honor of Shakespeare’s birthday, members of the Shakespeare Oratorio Society will present Venus and Mars, an exploration of the complicated and ever-changing relationships between women and men as seen in Shakepeare’s plays. From Jessica and Lorenzo (The Merchant of Venice) to Antony and Cleopatra, from Doll Tearsheet (Henry IV) and Dromio (Comedy of Errors) to Desdemona (Othello) and Berowne (Love’s Labour’s Lost), the four actors (two of each gender!) will cover a range of characters: young and old, peasants and nobles. We use the oratorio style of holding the text in our hands, which emphasizes and focuses attention on the words of the bard.
