Excerpts from the plays of William Shakespeare, performed by the Shrew Mechanicals, will be coming to the Jefferson Township Public Library on Tuesday, August 13 at 7:30 p.m.

Verily, Madly Thine will feature an array of moments from Shakespeare’s plays as well as a few selections from authors who have been inspired by Shakespeare’s works.

The  hour-long play that will focus on the temporary madness that overtakes people when they fall madly in love.

Verily, Madly Thine also features a sprinkling of music.  In total, these 60 minutes about falling in love will show William Shakespeare’s unmatched skill for giving voice to people in love.
