    Join Austin Shakespeare for a staged reading of Christopher Marlowe’s Tamburlaine the Great. This play that both enthralled and shocked Elizabethan audiences when it was first performed in 1587. Director for this reading is Ian Manners who served as co-director of Austin Shakespeare's production of The Rivals. Austin Shakespeare’s Artistic Director, Ann Ciccolella asked Manners to direct a reading of Marlowe’s Tamburlaine, since Manners is eminently qualified as a UT professor for more than 33 years, former chair of UT’s Middle Eastern Studies Dept. and active Austin Shakespeare actor and director. This event will feature a talk by Manners framing the story of the play, actors reading of key scenes from both of Marlowe’s Tamburlaine plays and a discussion.
