24hour Shakespeare is just three days away, and no, I am not panicking. My lack of sleep is not due to anxiety dreams wherein King Hamlet screams at me in the dining hall about sleeping through the entire even, and thus I must avenge the society by murdering Claudius.
Nope, that totally did not happen.
Last night during the Twelfth Night read-through, Shakers decorated posters with names of plays to hang in rooms throughout the house, with illustrations of the shows. (No one was really quite sure what to do for Coriolanus.) We’ve taken book inventory and cleared most Shakespeare books out of the library, and organized them into five categories – histories, tragedies, romances, problem plays, and comedies.
For those unable to attend the event, or unwilling to perform the War of the Roses on a Saturday morning, follow the event on the Society’s new tumblr at http://shakespearesociety.tumblr.com/. I will be live blogging from the event with updates about what we’ve reading, videos and performances, and probably some embarrassing photos.
If you have any questions about 24hour Shakespeare, email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Information regarding the event can be found on the “Events” page of this blog and at our event page on facebook (http://www.facebook.com/event.php?eid=197116736976766).
In faith and service,
