Free admission. No registration is required.
The First Folio exhibition is an exciting opportunity for visitors to see the plays in their first printed form. Without the First Folio and the efforts of its publishers to preserve Shakespeare’s works, plays such as Antony and Cleopatra, The Tempest, and Macbeth may have been lost.
Also featured will be the impact Shakespeare’s works have had on theatre in Asia as well as his great influence on our modern day use of the English language.
