#ShakespeareLives at Dymocks Book Store

And they have a balcony!

23 April, Sydney.

This is a priceless opportunity to hear Shakespeare spoken in a unique atmospheric space, or to get in on the act yourself!

The Dymocks building is one of Sydney’s beautiful secret spaces, with a foyer constructed of stunning early twentieth-century tiling, sweeping up to an ornate balcony. To celebrate the Shakespeare 400 anniversary, Dymocks Book Store on George Street is opening up their historic venue to all those game to stand on the balcony and speak a speech trippingly on the tongue.

From the website: “Can you quote Shakespeare better than anyone you know? Come and be part of our Shakespeare face off! Stand upon the balcony and bring your best lines to become the Shakespeare champion!

The ultimate winner will win a leather bound edition of the Arden Shakespeare’s Complete Works of William Shakespeare with runner up prizes of On Shakespeare’s Sonnets published for the Shakespeare 400 anniversary.”
