February 2011 Play Reading (part 2) - The Old Wives Tale

February Play Reading, Part 2

WHAT: Play reading - The Old Wives Tale
WHERE: FINNBRIT, Fredrikinkatu 20 A 9 (map)
WHEN: Friday, 25th February, 7pm

At play readings we read a play out loud. One person leads the reading and assigns roles. Everybody gets a chance to read.

Nely Keinänen will lead this reading of The Old Wives Tale.

The Old Wives Tale, by George Peele, is an early comedy performed by the Queen's Men, one of the most important theatrical troupes in the age of Shakespeare (or more precisely, in the decade prior to the age of Shakespeare). Although now forgotten by all but the most dedicated scholars, the play nevertheless has its charms. The play is a mish-mash of different styles and genres, with elements drawn from folktales and other sources.

Free entrance. Bring a bottle and a friend. Remember that play readings are not performances!
