Shakespeare's Pen

PORTSMOUTH — Seven Stages Shakespeare Company (7SSC), best known for their monthly ShakesBEERience program and as the creative team behind Prescott Park Arts Festival’s Shakespeare in Prescott Park, launched its third program last month called Shakespeare’s Pen- an open workshop for actors, artists, designers, and humans of all walks of life to come together and share in the splendor of Shakespeare’s words. The next date for Shakespeare’s Pen is Mon., October 14, from 5:30-7:30 p.m., at The Players’ Ring theater. As with all 7SSC’s programs, this event is free for all, or pay what you will.

Based directly on The Shakespeare Forum’s open workshops in New York City, this program is designed to bring people from any and all backgrounds into the same room and provide a safe place to learn, discuss, and grow. Using Shakespeare as a central theme, attendees are invited to come and share thoughts, pieces they have been working on, pieces they have always wanted to work on, or just listen.

Shakespeare’s Pen happens monthly, and each Pen is facilitated by a panel of 7SSC artists. Over the course of each evening 6-8 people chosen at random at the beginning of the night get a chance to work on anything they have brought in, receive constructive criticism- guided by that evening’s 7SSC facilitators- centered around the question “Why did you bring in this piece?”, and then work on it again for a second time.

From Shakespeare aficionados to the Shakespeare novice, the Pen is a safe haven to come and play, share ideas and grow- both as an artist and as a human. All are welcome.

The Players’ Ring theater is located on Marcy Street in Portsmouth. For more information visit, www.7stagesshakespeare.org.
