Shakespeare Club at The Word


Suitable for ages 16+

After running at Newcastle’s Lit and Phil for the past 4 years, Shakespeare Club is now ‘on the road’ and coming to The Word as part of WRITE Festival!

Shakespeare Club is a free, public, informal, and friendly reading group devoted to helping everyone enjoy Shakespeare. Whatever you know (or think you don’t know) about Shakespeare, everyone’s opinion will be valued as you are encouraged to share your ideas about the play we’ll be looking at: The Tempest.

With its tale of sea-faring, songs, and social commentary, this seems a perfect fit for South Shields.

You can pick up one of 10 free copies of the play from The Word (first come, first served!), or bring along your own version.
