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.
Founded and run by Paul Sugarman, we have started our 18th Season of Readings of ALL of Shakespeare’s plays.
Shakespeare for Everyone!The Instant Shakespeare readings are set up to make Shakespeare accessible. The readings are usually without rehearsal, but they are on-your-feet Instant staged readings where the readers/actors move around as much as they feel comfortable. Readers are encouraged to share with their fellow readers and the audience so that the plays can exist as words and thoughts communicated through space, not just words on the page.
Although most of the participants in the Instant Shakespeare readings are actors, all who wish to participate are invited to do so. Generally each reading has a Play Master(PM) responsible for casting and those who wish to participate can contact the PM. Sometimes there are still roles open at the reading and audience members can participate.
This month’s reading is – The Two Gentlemen of Verona .
