Shakespeare Sessions

Leader Joe
Mondays, 1:30pm – 3:30pm  — Donation Requested
Reading, discussion and viewing of plays from the rich Shakespearian canon. The time is structured to divide the work by character/part and casually perform the play while reading around the table—and there will be ample opportunity for considering and discussing the play and its context. And after reading either attend a staged production (when possible), or watch a video recorded version of the play. We will have copies of the preferred edition of the plays from The Folger Shakespeare Library, available for purchase. (Sessions resume January 23 to begin reading Henry IV.)
