The Complete Works of Shakespeare: Narrative Poems
Shakespeare Dallas and AT&T Performing Arts Center are in the midst of presenting staged readings of every single one of Williams Shakespeare's works over five years. The 27th in the series will be Narrative Poems.
A dramatic performance of Shakespeare’s two major narrative poems, Venus and Adonis and The Rape Of Lucrece. Believed to have been written while London theaters were closed due to the plague and among the first works by Shakespeare ever published. These rarely performed poems based on works by Ovid and focused on eroticism and matters of the heart explore the guilt and moral confusion created by uncontrolled lust.
Performances will take place in Hamon Hall. Student tickets for The Complete Works of William Shakespeare are now free to students with valid IDs. Student tickets will be available at the door only. Only two tickets per student ID.
