Enjoy a brief and beer-addled history of the Bard himself, before our collection of drunken rogues take the stage!
We’ll laugh, we’ll cry, we’ll all have hangovers tomorrow.
The Baltimore Shakespeare Factory’s goal is to represent our community’s diversity on our stage, our staff, our board of directors, and in our audience. We will be holding a focus group to discuss how we can better serve the community, listen to thoughts and feelings, and to receive guidance on how we can achieve our goals.
This is the first step in a larger effort, and while we welcome all voices, we would like this discussion to be with non-white members of the community.
