The book we know as the First Folio wasn’t given that title by the two colleagues who posthumously published Shakespeare’s plays in 1623. Its formal name, Mr. William Shakespeares Comedies, Histories, and Tragedies, is more functional, laying out genres for the 36 collected plays.

The Library continues its 10th season of Script-in-Hand performances and more than six months of special programming surrounding one of the cultural events of the year – an exhibit featuring a rare, nearly four-centuries-old First Folio collection of Shakespeare’s plays.

Karen Paisley, the Metropolitan Ensemble Theatre’s producing artistic director, created this collage of readings of some of Shakespeare’s greatest text, images of the text from the First Folio, and scene enactments. The production highlights popular and well-known passages while flushing out older more obscure ones and hopefully introducing and reintroducing Shakespeare in a visceral and exciting way.
