Shakespeare on Death Row? Theater 2020 Presents Free Reading of David Fuller’s “The B’ard” Wednesday Evening

Perhaps some contemporary politicians would like to put him, or at least his works, there, as they contain some very direct references to sex; even interracial sex (see The Merchant of Venice I.i.88 ff.). Brooklyn Heights resident David Fuller, co-artistic director (along with his wife, Judith Jarosz) of Theater 2020, whose production of Stephen Sondheim’s and James Lapine’s “Sunday in the Park with George” is running through Sunday, March 12, will present a free, no reservations required reading, by Mr. Fuller, of his one act, one actor adaptation “The B’ard” beginning at 7:00 PM on Wednesday, March 8 at the Mark O’Donnell Theater, 160 Schermerhorn Street (between Smith and Hoyt streets; near the A, C, and G Hoyt-Schermerhorn station).

The Bar’d is set in a modern Death Row cell, where an inmate and Shakespearean scholar convicted of murder contemplates his fate during his final hour on earth through scenes and soliloquies of the Bard.
