The Sweet Tea Shakespeare Hours | Time Travel | Live from Detour Coffeehouse
The Sweet Tea Shakespeare Hours kicks off its brand-spanking-new podcast with a live show full of music, new writing, and spoken word -- all built around the themes that emerge in Jaques' famous "All the world's a stage..." speech from As You Like It, also known as The Seven Ages of Man. Join some of our Sweet Tea Shakespeare musicians and actors along with a live audience of our very good friends as we time travel through life and its seasons. This episode features adult language in one of our scenes and another of our songs. Maybe not for kids (but depends on the kids!) Sweet Tea Shakespeare is a theatre and music company based in North Carolina that seeks to gather a diverse community around a common table to delight in the magic of story, song, and stagecraft. The Sweet Tea Shakespeare Hours are live events and intimate discussions, musical detours, scholarly lectures and artistic differences, all channeled through this podcast and in-person community gatherings. In one sense, The Sweet Tea Shakespeare Hours are an expanded version of STS’s famous preshow with a kick: an intimate, variety show with live music, original writing, guest artists, thought-provoking reflections, and whatever else may tickle our fancy. Theme by Owen Eddy "October" by gray. Used by permission. www.musicofgray.com.
