Reading Shakespeare

There are two separate Groups, alternate Monday afternoons

Time: Weeks 1 and 2, Monday, 2.00 - 4.00pm

Place: Mission Church, Vestry Road, Street

Leaders:

Week 1: June Kelland, Tel: 01458 442073; Email: junekelland4@gmail.com

Week 2: Julie Hillman, Tel: 01458 446643; Email: juliehillman@btinternet.com

Both groups are relaxed and informal made up of members who may be new to Shakespeare, long-time enthusiasts, or anywhere in between. A typical session consists of reading our chosen play aloud interspersed with lively discussion.

At some stage during the term, adding to our enjoyment and aiding our reading and understanding, we watch a film of the play on DVD, often the BBC production selected for its close reproduction of the original text, but sometimes a more cinematic version.

Most recently we have read and enjoyed Julius Caesar and A Winter's Tale (Grp1); and The Comedy of Errors and Cymbeline (Grp2).
