Alley All New Reading Series
TICKETS ARE FREE, ADVANCE RESERVATION IS REQUIRED.
An aging authoritarian ruler, a violent police state, a restless polarized people seething with paranoia: it’s a dangerous time for poets. Two of them—the great Kit Marlowe and the up-and-comer Will Shakespeare—meet in the back room of a pub to collaborate on a history play cycle, navigate the perils of art under a totalitarian regime, and flirt like young men with everything to lose. One of them may well be the death of the other.
Join us for a post-show discussion after the reading. The Alley All New Reading Series is free and open to the public.
To kick off the evening, Director of New Work Liz Frankel and Literary Manager Lily Wolff will reveal the line-up of the upcoming Alley All New Festival, held January 16-26.
