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 work on 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 Othello to our first meeting.
