This Sunday at 6:30 is a music stand reading of Shakespeare’s Skull by Rich Rubin followed by a brief discussion. There is no charge for admission.
The year, 1794; the place, London.
Frank Chambers is a young physician with a dwindling income and a penchant for gambling. Horace Walpole is a celebrated British aristocrat who believes genius if reflected by the shape of our skills. Gate brings Frank and Horace together for a singular purpose: To steal the skull of the greatest literary genius of all time. Horace is hoping to prove this theory, while Frank is hoping for a few extra coins in his pocket. Will their hopes be realized or will unforeseen events flip them upside down?
Shakespeare’s Skull is a comedy based on a legend — a legend that may be closer to truth than to fiction.
