About Shakespeare on Tap

With professional actors seated on stage, scripts on music stands, and minimal sound and lighting design elements, this new series offers you the chance to come hear new and/or contemporary plays inspired by Shakespeare as you enjoy dinner and drinks from The Press Room’s delicious menu.

About The Book of Will by Lauren Gunderson 

“Without William Shakespeare, we wouldn’t have literary masterpieces like Romeo and Juliet, King Lear, Twelfth Night and more. But without Henry Condell and John Heminges, we would have lost half of Shakespeare’s plays forever! After the death of their friend and mentor, the two actors are determined to compile the First Folio and preserve the words that shaped their lives. They’ll just have to borrow, beg, and band together to get it done. Amidst the noise and color of Elizabethan London, THE BOOK OF WILL finds an unforgettable true story of love, loss, and laughter, and sheds new light on a man you may think you know.”

Two tickets types are available for your convenience:

-Reserved Seating tickets for $14 offer guaranteed table seating

-General Admission, FREE FOR ALL, Or Pay What You Will tickets offer a variety of options including bar area seats, seating on the banquettes in the back of the mezzanine (view of the stage via TV screen), and standing room.

This program is made possible thanks to the generous support of 7SSC Season Sponsors DTC Lawyers: Donahue, Tucker & Ciandella, Faith Harrington & Peter Lamb through Julia’s Fund of the Maine Community Foundation; Eric Dufour, MBA, CFP of SagePoint Financial; and Art-Speak.
