William Ham

William Ham, author of the Shakespearean pastiche ‘Thirteenth Night, or Whatever You Say.’

ASTORIA — “Thirteenth Night, or Whatever You Say,” a Shakespearean pastiche by William Ham, is the next presentation in the TEN-FIFTEEN series created by Pier Pressure Productions. It can be seen 10:15 a.m. and 10:15 p.m. on Friday, March 15, at 1015 Commercial St.

Ham is a playwright, actor, KMUN programmer and Pier Pressure board member. This short play premiered as part of the year-end festivities at Plimoth Plantation 23 years ago, when Ham made his living as a 40-hour-a-week Pilgrim. It was performed by the playwright as a monologue at the Pier’s little theater on 10th Street in 2010-11.

The reading will feature William Ham, his son Liam Ham, Mick Alderman, Arnie Hummasti, Edward James, Daric Moore, DanPa Reiley and Slab Slabinski. This TEN-FIFTEEN will give the public a quick view of the show before it appears in its full-length version a year from now on the completed Pier Pressure stage.

This is a one-day-only event. Donations are welcome.
