Would you like to learn more about Shakespeare’s plays? When they were written? Why they were written? Quirky facts about their stage history and what cool films have been made from the plays? If so, Shakesology is for you.

Shakesology is a 2½-hour special event to learn the history and context of Shakespeare’s work before viewing the plays.  It will be held at 2 p.m. on Saturday, June 15, at Lawson McGhee Library in downtown Knoxville. Admission is free.

Inspired by a program created at Shakespeare’s Globe and led by Shakespeare On The Square dramaturge, Dr. Jennifer Horn, each study session will showcase Shakespeare’s story and influences, as well as some of the choices that other productions have made and the background behind the selection for this year’s Shakespeare On The Square production.

Members of the Stage Company artistic team will also discuss the current productions and their creative process. In 2019, they will be highlighting "A Midsummer Night’s Dream" and "The Comedy Of Errors."
