Be Here Now: Labor Day’s Marathon Studio Festival of Plays Set For Shakespeare & Company [Berkshire on Stage]
One of the most popular events each year at Shakespeare & Company is their annual Studio Festival of plays. Usually held over two days, Artistic Director Tony Simotes announced today that this year this labor of love for the theatre will all happen on one day only, and Labor Day at that. While they are mostly simply staged readings, that doesn’t stop the actors from really getting into their parts as you can see in the above photo from 2010.
Simotes announced the titles for its 17th annual mini-marathon of plays never before performed at the Company, running one-day-only on Monday, September 5th in Founders’ Theatre. Staged readings begin at 11:00 AM, and continue through to 11:00PM. Company actors and special guest actors will present seven productions throughout the day, in the form of works-in-progress and staged readings.
