The Wareham Free Library and WCTV are teaming up to host a virtual screening of “Stephano: The True Story of Shakespeare’s Shipwreck.”
The film tells the story of Stephen Hopkins, a Virginia-bound castaway who later was a passenger on the Mayflower and was eventually immortalized as Stephano, a drunken character in Shakespeare’s last play, “The Tempest.”

Two-time Emmy nominated producer Andrew Buckley and his gum-shoe crew, Hit and Run History, chase Hopkins’ story through time and space.

The event will be broadcast simultaneously on Facebook Live and on Comcast Channel 9 and Verizon Channel 30 in Wareham. 

After the screening, there will be a Q & A with Buckley. 

This program is supported in part by a grant from the Wareham Cultural Council, a local agency which is supported by the Massachusetts Cultural Council, a state agency.

The event will be held from 7 to 9 p.m. on Monday, September 14.
