At Del Shakes we love the Bard, but there are other creative voices that can also help us in exploring our shared humanity in similar ways that Shakespeare does – with poetry, imaginative theatricality, and mythic reach. As we listen to more voices, our ability to find and celebrate our connection is increased!
We’re excited to launch a new series – “Beyond Shakespeare.” Through this program, we’ll feature diverse creative voices in conversation with the stories and themes from the full productions in our 2022 season.
There is a long history of writers being inspired by Shakespeare to create their own works. We invite you to join in this cultural tradition via two avenues: play readings and poetry slams.
