Shakespeare Reading: Two Noble Kinsmen
On select Staurdays at Epiphany, the Instant Shakespeare Company will be holding readings of Shakespeare plays performed by professional actors. Great for Shakespeare enthusiasts and new comers alike.
An adaptation of Chaucer's Knight's Tale. In this story, the two kinsmen are Palamon and Arcite; they are captured while fighting for Thebes against Athens. While imprisoned, the two cousins find themselves attracted to Emilia, who is the sister of Hippolyta, wife of Theseus. Their professed "eternal friendship" takes a beating as the two vow to woo her.
The Instant Shakespeare Company is dedicated to the proposition that Shakespeare is for Everyone! The company organizes annual readings of ALL of Shakespeare's plays using original Folio & Quarto texts.This is the Instant Shakespeare’s 15th Season.
