The Best way to read Shakespeare’s plays is out loud – and with friends!

The Tennessee Stage Company and Shakespeare On The Square invite you to read Shakespeare’s plays with us – out loud!

Getting back into the swing of it, our next reading date is Sunday, February 18,  when we will gather at the Lawson McGhee Library to read one of the history plays  –  Henry IV, Part One, which will also be performed on Market Square in July, 2018. Get a sneak preview of this rarely performed gem in advance of our production  this summer.


Readings are at the Lawson McGee Library on Sunday afternoons. Readings are free and open to the public. Hearing these plays read aloud offers much more insight into the depths of Shakespeare’s work.

We will meet at 2:00 p.m. There will be chairs set up and whoever wants to read out loud can choose one. There will be additional seating for anyone who wants to read along silently.   Copies of the play will be available but please bring your own if possible.


We welcome all voices, all dialects. We read the plays for the joy of reading them and to hear and discover more about the plays, especially plays that have not yet been performed by Shakespeare On The Square. Maybe one of these is the one we should perform next!
