Bootleg Shakespeare
Henry VI, part 3

at the Folger Theatre
July 16, 2018  7:30pm

The company meets in the morning with only their lines memorized. After a single rehearsal, the show goes on — ready or not.

The Taffety Punk Bootleggers return this summer to complete the trilogy begun in 2016. These amazing plays, too often conflated, are seldom performed on their own. We will stage the entire play, battles and all, in a single day.

Bootleg Shakespeare is the most exciting theatre event of the year. And it is free.

Tickets will be available at the box office on the day of the performance at 6:00pm. Limit two per person. First come, first serve. General admission. If all tickets are gone by show-time, there will be a queue for standing room tickets and unclaimed seats. There will be no advanced reservations of any kind.

Good luck!

Taffety Punk's company members act, dance, and make music. Sometimes we do all three at once.
