WELL VERSED SHAKESPEARE – Saturday 22nd OCTOBER 2016
Well Versed is presenting ALL the Shakespeare Sonnets (154 of them!) as part of the Shakespeare 400 'family fun day' at UWA on Sat. 22 October (between 12 noon and 3pm outside the Octagon Theatre)
As far as we can tell this has never been done before in the Southern Hemisphere. The whole event is free entry, and audiences can wander through and stay as long - or short - as they like, with some comfy chairs provided.
Eight of Well Versed crew will be reading, four at a time taking turns in blocks of 24 sonnets, so that the voices are varied. Each sonnet takes about 1 minute so the whole lot just fits in the 3 hours.
