Every June, members of The Shakespeare Institute read aloud, in chronological order, the complete dramatic canon of a sixteenth- or early seventeenth-century playwright. The exercise enables us to observe, in concentrated form, the development of a single dramatist's imagination and technique, and to experience a large number of neglected plays by a significant talent of the Shakespearian era.
