Saturday 22nd of October, Well Versed Shakespeare


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.
