A vet actor, followed closely behind by a professional prompter, is helped to draw from memories that produce a deeply personal and truthful rendering of Shakespeare’s words.

Anyone can come to our weekly meetings.

They are held in order to give the veteran participants a consistent point of contact with each other and the FoC staff but we often welcome students, Shakespeare scholars and supportive civilians into the circle.

These meetings are casual. We may socialize, read and discuss a particular piece of Shakespeare, rehearse scenes for a pop-up performance or talk about other alternatives for health and well being. Got something you want to talk about? Let us know!

Meetings are entirely drop in.

Come whenever you feel like it. You can stay the whole time or leave when you need to. It's good to be on the mailing list for updates or get in touch with FoC staff to make sure we are meeting but we meet (currently) most Wednesdays from 4:00 - 6:00.

Veterans who are interested in joining FoC on a regular basis are encouraged to participate in one or more of our weekend "intensives" but there is no criteria for membership. Full productions are an enormous commitment of time and energy. Many of our long term members find it a wonderful, fulfilling experience, but no one is required to do one of our once a year productions. There are lots of other opportunities to be involved without such a commitment.

Send a message about your interest in joining us for these unique get-togethers.
