Shakespeare’s Case is a new play developed for the The Nashville Shakespeare Festival’s educational outreach. This one-hour production puts Shakespeare’s relevance on trial, with William Shakespeare himself appearing to argue his defense. Drawing scripts, props, and costumes out of his traveling case, Shakespeare pleads his case using his theatrical skill and magic to convince the jury that he is innocent of being boring, confusing, and irrelevant.
Shakespeare's Case will be a humorous and informative introduction to Shakespeare's works for all ages as well as a delight for those who already love the Bard. Through this sixty-minute performance, Shakespeare re-emerges as not only relevant in the twenty-first century, but integral to our culture. Through your support, we hope you will join us in educating your community about an artist whose mind and spirit so greatly influenced the history of our civilization and continues to inspire and inform us to this day.
