Events at the Tavern: LadyShakes 2017: An Evening of Shakespeare, Performed & Produced by the Women of the Tavern (May 15)
“And burn the long lived phoenix in her blood.” - Sonnet 19
Join us for the 2nd Annual LadyShakes! The women of the Atlanta Shakespeare Company have joined together again for a second year of Shakespearean text, combat, and music… entirely performed, directed, and produced by us!
Only 16% of Shakespeare’s characters are written as women. Now, we all love Bill, but we think that’s kind of disappointing, as the Atlanta Shakespeare Company trains and employs some of the most talented and hard-working women in our city. With so few female roles to go around, we very rarely have the opportunity to work with one another. Our passion for our work and our community was the inspiration for this project, and we cannot wait to perform our second show!
This performance is a benefit the Women’s Resource Center to End Domestic Violence in Decatur, GA. In addition to proceeds from ticket sales going to support this important organization, we are also going to be holding a silent auction!
To misquote Edmund, “We burn, we glow, we prosper. Now Gods and Goddesses, stand up for women!”
House opens at 6:15pm
Dinner and drinks will be available
Tickets are $15 with General Admission seating
