The Shakespeare Society is a monthly Shakespeare reading and discussion group. We meet on the third Tuesday of every month at 6:30 p.m.

This is a virtual event. Please email my.nguyen@dc.gov for additional details.

We intend to read and discuss every single Shakespeare play in series-order, grouped in several series reflecting his tragedies, comedies, problem plays, romances and histories. There is no preferred edition. The West End Neighborhood Library's adult services librarian will facilitate the discussion.

The group will continue to meet virtually. Please email my.nguyen@dc.gov for additional details.

Having read his tragedies, histories, comedies, and so-called problem plays, Series 5 is the final leg of this journey and will focus on Shakespeare's romances. The full reading list for Series 5 is as follows:

June 21 | Pericles
July 19 | Cymbeline
August 16 | The Winter's Tale
September 20 | The Tempest
October 18 | The Two Noble Kinsmen
