An online group has been set up to read the complete plays of William Shakespeare in the order they were written and livestream it on YouTube.
The aim is to bring actors and audiences together to collectively enjoy and experience Shakespeare at a time when connecting in a traditional theatre space isn’t possible.
The first livestream will be of The Two Gentleman of Verona, introduced by Ben Crystal, on Thursday 19 March, 7pm GMT.
The aim is to make the readings a fun, sociable way for actors and theatre makers to stay connected and creative during these unprecedented times, and also provide audiences with something that’s live, raw, and feels spontaneous and exciting – replicating the theatre experience for those who need to self-isolate.
