Purchase a ticket to our reading of Shakespeare's The Merry Wives of Windsor at Craftwork in Detroit's West Village and you'll automatically be entered into a drawing to win cool prizes like a copy of the play (Folger edition), a Shakespeare in Detroit hoodie or a Subway gift card ($20 value) PLUS everyone gets a complimentary shot of Jagermeister (to represent the stag in Merry Wives. Hey, we couldn't do this reading without a pair of deer antlers, could we?!).

We'll be serving a variety of teas and pastries for our audience to enjoy in the gallery of The Scarab Club while listening to the hip hop Shakespeare stylings of The Sonnet Man.
