Nebraska Shakespeare and The Durham Museum

April 9th - May 1st, 2016
@ The Durham Museum
The Durham Museum was named Nebraska’s host for the Folger Shakespeare Library's First Folio! The Book that Gave Us Shakespeare national tour. The First Folio is the first complete collected edition of Shakespeare’s plays, published in 1623, seven years after his death. Compiled by two of Shakespeare’s fellow actors, it preserves 36 of Shakespeare’s plays. 
The First Folio will be opened to the most quoted line
from Shakespeare's Hamlet, "To be or not to be."

Nebraska Shakespeare is thrilled to be partnering with
the Durham Museum to produce events
surrounding this fantastic exhibit.
