Shakespeare, the Globe and the World

Learn to see Shakespeare as a living dramatist whose plays speak to our society as vividly as they spoke to Elizabethan Englishmen. Shakespeare’s exuberant world comes to life as students explore the historical background and personalities of his characters. Read and discuss four plays, including the two scheduled for this summer’s Old Globe Shakespeare Festival, A Midsummer Night's Dream and The Merchant of Venice as well as Henry IV, Parts I & II. Students are encouraged to attend the plays and specially scheduled pre-show workshops with actors involved in the productions. A great class, whether you're new to Shakespeare's world or a lifelong connoisseur.

Note: Attendance at plays (with a group discount) and workshops (free) optional but recommended. Fee does not include cost of theatre tickets.
