Shakespeare Society: The Comedies

The Shakespeare Society is a monthly Shakespeare reading and discussion group. We meet on the third Tuesday of every month at 6:30 p.m.

We intend to read and discuss every single Shakespeare play in series-order, grouped in several series reflecting his tragedies, comedies, problem plays, romances and histories. There is no preferred edition. The West End Neighborhood Library's adult services librarian will facilitate the discussion.

While the branch is currently closed for in-person discussions, we continue to meet virtually. Please email my.nguyen@dc.gov for additional details.
