Shakespeare for the Masses

Quick & Painless & Free

The brainchild of Chelsea McCarthy and Nicole Galland, the tongue-in-cheek Shakespeare for the Masses bills itself as the “quick and painless and free” way to enjoy Shakespeare in the off-season. With an ensemble of nimble island actors, the shows are short and performed after a single day of rehearsal. A highly opinionated narrator lends modern commentary and clarity to the events.

Since October 2008, Martha’s Vineyard Playhouse’s Shakespeare for the Masses has staged over 30 lively readings, from Shakespeare’s most famous to his most obscure. Far more action-packed than most staged readings, the performances include duels, robberies, murders, naval battles, and even a game show.
