The nerdy-coolest book club / Shakespeare geek session returns with another session on A Midsummer Night’s Dream, this time to watch a heaping helping of different adaptations and screen versions to get all our Pucks in a row before coming to watch in Central Park this summer. Join us, won’t you?

Saturdays, April 15 & 22
1:00-4:00pm EST
On Zoom!

The play is available in various forms via CarmichaelsBookstore and Louisville Free Public Library

Now, for some reading Shakespeare brings back nightmares of that one ex-nun/former coach who taught Freshman English. But digging into these plays and treating them like the playscripts they are can be a lot of grown-up fun once you unlock some of the tricky bits in a casual, snack’n’chat, no-test-on-the-reading setting. So resident Kentucky Shakespeare actor/dramaturg (pronounced: professional nerd) Gregory Maupin will lead a group through these sessions that can help you get the most out of reading Shakespeare on your own, before a show/movie, or with a group of other weirdos who enjoy this kind of thing, too*.

*This is primarily a series aimed at normal, decent people, but actors are not unwelcome.

Here’s what some past participants had to say:

“Greg knows WAY too much to fit into 3 or 4 sessions, but…I am jazzed about further DIY exploration.”
