Had I no eyes but ears, my ears would love

William Shakespeare

Join us for a dramatic performance of Shakespeare’s two major narrative poems, Venus and Adonis (Sunday, December 13) and The Rape Of Lucrece (Monday, December 14). Believed to have been written while London theaters were closed due to the plague and among the first works by Shakespeare ever published. These rarely performed poems based on works by Ovid and focused on eroticism and matters of the heart explore the guilt and moral confusion created by uncontrolled lust.
