The starting point and the centre of this group's attention is always one of Shakespeare's plays (or possibly some of his poems). From there the group may reach out to explore the context in which the works were written and produced, for example the theatres, actors, audience, plays by other dramatists, contemporary history, religious conflict, the change from king to queen, the world picture, the plague etc etc. There are many possibilities...
However, the focus will remain the meaning of the play or poem both for us and for Shakespeare's contemporaries.
