The Library’s 10th season of Script-in-Hand performances concludes with an original Shakespeare-inspired production – a collage of readings of some of the Bard’s greatest texts, scene enactments, and images of text from the First Folio. Created by Karen Paisley, the Metropolitan Ensemble Theatre’s producing artistic director, the production highlights popular and well-known passages while flushing out older, more obscure ones, introducing and reintroducing Shakespeare in a visceral and exciting way.
