Join us for the Play On Shakespeare educational series First Reads. This week we’ll be reading and discussing Midsummer Night’s Dream translated by Jeff Whitty with dramaturgy by Heidi Schreck.

First Reads aims to replicate that initial table read on the first day of rehearsal—the questions that come up, the discovery of rhythm, the wild world of Shakespeare. We’ll read and discuss the play with a group of actors, a director, playwright, and dramaturg. All over Zoom! We will be joined via live-stream by students and others who will be able to engage in the discussions as the readers weave through the play.
