Shakespeare: The Sonnets Out Loud @ The Street Theatre

Following his instructions to “No longer mourn for me when I am dead” (Sonnet 71), on Saturday 30 April 2016, individuals, communities, and institutions around the world are joining together to celebrate the 400th anniversary of Shakespeare’s death.

As The Street’s contribution to the international movement, audiences will be given a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to experience some of the most beautiful love poetry ever written. Over the course of one epic, poetic evening we’ll feel the power of Shakespeare's 400-year-old words celebrating eternal love, immortal beauty, and the soul's depths.

Read by renowned Shakespearean actor, William Zappa, and featuring stellar countertenor Tobias Cole, with musical accompaniment by Benn Sutcliffe, The Sonnets Out Loud is an experience that you will not find repeated.
