ShakesBEERience: Messenger Day



One day. Eight plays. Many ShakesBEERs. Seven Stages Shakespeare Company's wildly-popular ShakesBEERience play reading program heads on-location to Throwback Brewery where eight of William Shakespeare's history plays will be read between dawn and dusk in one day. Professional actors- with script in one hand, beer in the other- will take you on the journey starting with Richard II, and wrapping up the event as night falls with Richard III. Throwback Brewery will offer a special, custom menu of modern day eats for breakfast, lunch and dinner inspired by menus from Shakespeare's Day, and will also release their highly-anticipated ShakesBEER, with a portion of the proceeds for each ShakesBEER sold benefitting Seven Stages Shakespeare Company. Come for the whole day, or come for one play-- the experience you have is yours to create.

While they are FREE FOR ALL, Or Pay What You Will, reserved tickets are required.
