Reading and Acting Shakespeare's The Winter's Tale

GENINT 711.361

Osher (50+). This course explores Shakespeare’s dramatic genius and why his plays remain a sublime achievement in the English language.  


About this course:

The ideal group for those who love acting, theatre, language, and Shakespeare. Each week, we read aloud and discuss one act from the play, then look at selected scenes and speeches from an actor's perspective (scripts in hand, no memorization required). We explore the different ways that Shakespeare's language helps us bring his extraordinary characters to life. All are welcome, no prior acting experience required, only a desire to passionately engage with the greatest dramatist of all time. Please bring a copy of the play to our first meeting.
