ASP at the BPL November 5

ASP/Boston Public Library Event in conjunction with the BPL exhibit “Shakespeare Unauthorized.”


What: “The Play’s the Thing!”

When:  Saturday, November 5, 11:30 am – 1:45 pm

Where: The McKim Exhibition Hall on the first floor of the McKim building at the Central Library in Copley Square

Tickets: Event is FREE and open to the public!


Shakespeare’s poetry was written to be performed, and his rich text is most resonant when brought to life.  Join us as we bring scenes from Hamlet, the first show of our 13th season, to the Copley branch.


  • Travel with actors from our Hamlet through various spaces in the library, starting in the Shakespeare Unauthorized exhibit room itself, as we see Hamlet’s inner struggle unfold.
  • Following the performance, stay for an interactive workshop led by members of ASP’s teaching artist team, in which you’ll have a chance to step into the shoes of Shakespeare’s actors and make Hamlet’s enduring words your own.
