Willpower! Montgomery College’s week long Shakespeare festival with free events, lectures, and demonstrations. I went to several of the events last year, which ultimately culminated into the American Shakespeare Center performance of “A Comedy of Errors”, and really enjoyed myself. So’ if you have the time, I can personally recommend checking it out.
Here are the details that were posted in our comment section just yesterday:
