Join the Shakespeare Club for a special Bloomsday reading on June 16 at noon!
The UCOP Shakespeare Club meets intermittently to do a cold reading of a Shakespeare play — aspiring to boil down all swashbuckling and soliloquizing to one hour.
Since June 16 is officially Bloomsday — a commemoration and celebration of the life of Irish writer James Joyce, observed annually in Dublin — the club is taking a departure from their regularly scheduled Shakespeare to read from James Joyce’s “Ulysses” (which may include some fun Shakespearean references). The reading will take place on Wednesday, June 16, at noon, and will be led by Bernadette Scully. The script will be screen-shared.
No preparation is necessary. Just show up, virtually — we wouldn’t want a plague on both our houses!
