Auckland Libraries: Shakespeare Aloud

Shakespeare Aloud

Rūrūtao ā-Waha

Every second Thursday 7pm to 8pm Free

We meet once a fortnight at Highland Park Library to share the joy of reading every play that Shakespeare wrote, in chronological order.

​We sit in a circle and read the parts in 'round-robin' fashion. This is not intended to be a performance, merely a group of Shakespeare enthusiasts who want to experience Shakespeare out loud in a relaxed setting. You are welcome to read along silently, if that is your preference. There is no need to commit every fortnight but there is a great deal of satisfaction and fun to be had when you finish each play.

Please bring your own copy or tablet if possible, a few spares will be available. So if this sounds interesting to you, come along and experience the humour, the intensity, and the joy of Shakespeare that keep his words alive and relevant 400 years after they were written.
