Event description

Description

Our next inebriated reading will take place in Ferndale. That's right, we are spreading the Shakespeare in Detroit love, during the month of love, in Southeast Michigan. These inebriated readings serve as fundraisers for our work in schools, Shakespeare STEAM. You can learn more about our educational work c/o a recent story on WDIV, Channel 4 in Detroit by clicking on the link here.

Our company of actors will be reading an abbreviated version of William Shakespeare's Love's Labour's Lost. The first round of cocktails is on us! You'll receive a Maiden's Muse made with White Blossom vodka, honey, Dry Curçao and lime. That's right, it is a cocktail with wonderful qualities just like the Princess of France. And, of course, you can buy more at the intermission. OR, stick around as the bar opens to the public at 4:30 p.m. and have more drinks at this awesome bar with our friends at Valentine Vodka! MUST BE 21 OR OLDER TO ATTEND.

Do good by supporting our educational work and feel good with some of the best liquor around!

You'll also be automatically entered into a raffle to win cool swag/prizes with the price of your ticket.

So grab your Valentine and come to Valentine Vodka to celebrate Love with us during this laid-back reading of Shakespeare's comedy. And if you need a brief summary of the play, check this one out from our friends at Folger Shakespeare Library:

In Love’s Labor’s Lost, the comedy centers on four young men who fall in love against their wills. The men, one of them the king of Navarre, pledge to study for three years, avoiding all contact with women. When the Princess of France arrives on a state visit, the king insists she and her ladies camp outside the court. Even so, each young man falls in love with one of the ladies.

Meanwhile, Don Armado, a Spanish soldier, falls for a servant girl, Jacquenetta. Costard, an illiterate local, mixes up two letters he is to deliver, one from Armado to Jacquenetta and the other from Berowne, one of the king's companions, to Rosaline, one of the French ladies.

The men confess they are in love, and devise a pageant for the ladies, who set a trap for them by exchanging identifying markers. When word comes that the princess's father is dead, the ladies reject the men’s proposals as rash and impose a year's delay before any further wooing.

P.s. Shakespeare in Detroit Patreon members will receive a code for a $10 discount.
