Hackney Libraries Shakespeare Celebration

Two actors, both alike in dignity, in fair Hackney where we lay our scene…

Roaming actors perform excerpts from Shakespearean plays as part of Hackney Libraries’ celebration of Shakespeare 400. To mark the 400th anniversary of the Bard’s death, Arcola Theatre actors will join the celebrations of Shakespeare’s life and works at Hackney Central Library during October half term.

Join us for a day of curiosity, creativity, exploration and fun!Our actors will be roaming Hackney Central Library between 2-5pm on Thursday 27th October and Saturday 29th October – come say hi and you might be greeted with one of Shakespeare’s most famous monologues!

Open to all ages and for free, Arcola Theatre and Hackney Libraries open the door to Shakespeare and allow everyone to have an accessible and exciting encounter with one of the world’s most famous playwrights.
