The Historical Society of Talbot County and ArtHouse Live Stage Reading of Shakespeare’s Twelfth Night

On Tuesday, January 6th, the Historical Society of Talbot County and ArtHouse Live Productions will present a staged reading of Shakespeare’s Twelfth Night in the HSTC Auditorium at 17 South Washington Street in Easton. Complimentary Wassail and King Cake at the Inn at 202 Dover will follow the performance. Twelfth Night has been regarded as an early form of romantic comedy, featuring a shipwreck, cases of mistaken identity, separated and then reunited twins, and gender-crossing disguises. The plot centers on overcoming obstacles to true love. In both 19th-century Europe and the United States, the joyous celebration of Twelfth Night, traditionally associated with the day the Magi worshipped the infant Jesus, marked the end of the holiday season. Tickets to the staged reading of this delightful comedy are $25 and can be purchased at the Historical Society at 25 South Washington Street in Easton from 10AM to 4PM, Monday through Saturday. Credit card purchases can be made by calling (410) 822-0773.
