Spend the Sunday and/or Monday evening of “Valentines’ Week” with The Goddess of Love (Venus) and her mortal lover (the handsome Adonis). Between 1592 & 1594, theatres in London were closed due to the plague. Certain playwrights refocused their talents on writing narrative poetry. In 1593, Shakespeare published “Venus and Adonis,” and he was to become more famous during his lifetime for this poem than for any of his plays. On two nights only: two lovers and two narrators (Juliana Valente, Alex Lewis, Rachel Pottern Nunn, & Stan Williams) will bring Shakespeare’s words to life.
