“No, Time, thou shalt not boast that I do change.”
Shakespeare’s Sonnets have fascinated the world with their beauty and mystery ever since they were published in 1609. They contain such an overwhelming spectrum of human thought that it can sometimes be hard to examine them as a whole. We will perform them in one evening. We will explore the characters (The Dark Lady, The Fair Youth, The Rival Poet), the themes (Love, Lust, Beauty, and Time to name a few), and perhaps find some threads of story. The goal of this project is to breathe life into these poems and share them with an audience, so we can all understand them better, and see if they reveal to us their secrets.
