Nobody wrote a death scene as well as William Shakespeare, so join us at Brazos Bookstore on April 23 at 2pm for a performance of some of the Bard’s greatest fatal moments!

To celebrate the 400th anniversary of Shakespeare’s death, actors from the Houston Shakespeare Festival will invade the store to perform some of his greatest death scenes. This partnership between Brazos Bookstore, the University of Houston, and its Houston Shakespeare Festival builds off of 2015’s Summer of Shakespeare, a summer-long, interdisciplinary series of events that highlighted Shakespeare’s work. We’re excited to bring the Bard back to Brazos and help kick off the Festival’s 42nd season!
