Shakespeare on Draught A.K.A. Shakespeare on Digital presents…
“BATTLE OF THE BARD: A Monologue Bracket Challenge”
Mon. Mar 30 – Mon. Apr 13A battle royale featuring 32 of our favorite iconic Shakespeare speeches and 32 actors. New content every 2-3 days.
While we may not be able to meet in the Orpheus Brewing parking lot for beers and Shakespeare right now, the team at Shakespeare on Draught is working hard to bring some of their magic straight to your living room in these difficult times. The team took their 32 favorite iconic Shakespeare speeches and 32 of their beloved SoD veterans all together in a bracket, bc #sports. Which speech will reign supreme? YOU DECIDE!
HOW IT WORKS:
Voting and competition are focused on determining Atlanta’s Most Beloved Shakespeare Speech, not strictly great performances, bc that’s all relative anyway.
On Monday, March 30th, they will post 32 videos of SoD actors performing the competing monologues. Monologue A will compete against Monologue B for the most votes. If Monologue B loses, then Actor B who performed it must film Monologue A (which won). Both performances of Monologue A (by Actors A and B) will then compete against Monologue C (by Actors C and D). during the next round of voting. This continues every 2-3 days all the way until the CHAMPIONSHIP.
HOW TO VOTE:
Please share the videos far and wide, but votes will only be counted on our Official Facebook and Instagram pages.
