“SUMMER AT ITS FINEST” — Los Angeles Times

Griffith Park Free Shakespeare Festival now playing! This week’s schedule:

SPECIAL STUDIO EVENT:

Solemn Mockeries  (performs in our indoor Studio, 3191 Casitas Ave. #168, 90039)
Wednesday, August 20 at 7:00 pm (reservations recommended)

Meet William-Henry Ireland, the original slacker. He’s deemed “too stupid to educate” by his father, yet somehow this undistinguished 18th century teenager pulls off the literary crime of the century as a Shakespeare forger. This one-man show features David Melville as William-Henry looking back over twenty years, reliving the glorious moment when he could say that he was Shakespeare
