We began our first venture into the canon halfway through with As You Like It on July 21, 2018. We began halfway through the canon to complement the Shakespeare Allowed! reading hosted by our friends at The Nashville Shakespeare Festival. They began their fourth read-through of the canon in July 2018 at the beginning of the canon. This will enable readers to experience more than one play each month if they wish and eager readers to complete the entire canon in half the time!
