Thanks to the fun-filled success of last year’s Sonnet Slam, we invite you to join us the evening of Monday, May 13, 2013 at Optimist Theatre’s …
“All the World’s a Stage Sonnet Slam”
and all the men and women, merely players-
they have their exits and their entrances,
and one man in his time plays many parts,
his acts being seven ages.
