The Shakespeare Project of Chicago: Women Beware Women
Saturday, Feb. 24, 2:00-4:00 pm, Auditorium
For more than 20 years, the Shakespeare Project of Chicago has presented staged readings of works by Shakespeare and his contemporaries. Featuring talented members of the Actors Equity Association, these professional productions are a favorite throughout the North Shore (and WPL tradition for more than a decade) and are often played to a full-capacity house. Registration is not required, but arrive early for the best seats. After the reading, stay for a post-show discussion to interact with the actors and creative team and further enrich your experience.
Enjoy a staged reading of Women Beware Women, a Jacobean tragedy by Thomas Middleton. This bloody tragedy follows the doomed relationship of Leantio and Bianca. Sometimes called a Romeo & Juliet “for grownups,” this dark tale looks at what happens after the first bloom of young love.
The Shakespeare Project theatrical reading is funded by the Friends of the Wilmette Library.
