Published by austin on

shakey_cropPeter Eramo is not only the Publicity and Marketing Manager for the Folger Shakespeare Library in Washington DC, he’s also the commissioner of the Folger Fantasy Football League, which each year pits teams in the Montague and Capulet divisions against each other as they vie for the coveted and illustrious Shakey (pictured, right). Peter discusses the FFFL’s origins and his dreams of expansion, and also talks about the league’s academic support and extensive textual citations, its most excellent team names, some surprising Shakespearean epiphanies, evidence of an actual Shakespearean player, the craft and art of casting your players, and the fulfillment of filling your football with fine Folger fantasy flavor. Forsooth! (Length 19:17)
