Event Description

We’d love to see you at Free Will, an open mike Shakespeare venue on Saturday afternoon, September 11 at 4 PM.

It’s at the Burren, 247 Elm St., Somerville, at the Davis Square T stop on the Red Line. It is a free, all ages show. The Burren is a relaxed restaurant/Irish pub with a large back room and a stage.

Everyone who shows up is encouraged to pick up a script and belt out any speech they want from the Plays. People can read scenes, monologues, sonnets, or rants and stories about the Plays. There is no judging, and no training required. The crowd will cheer deliriously for everyone. You have permission to speak the speech here, no matter how much you fear it.

The show will include:

Five Versions of the Witches: five takes on the weird sisters

Food of Love: William Shatner doing the opening of Twelfth Night

Dane of the Dead: the zombie movie hidden inside Hamlet
