Contact Leader Shakespeare group

We are a group who discuss and learn more about the man and his plays.

Shakespeare was taught as a subject in school when we were young and we often rediscover him in later life. We approach Shakespeare as he intended, not by reading the plays, but by watching, looking at extracts and discussing different themes.

Topics have included ‘Gender changes in modern plays’, ‘Shakespeare’s romantic scenes’, ‘Original Pronunciation – what the verse sounded like in the 16th century', ‘Shakespeare abroad’ and ‘Putting on a play in Elizabethan times.

Members are invited to put forward topics to lead the group in discussion. There is no rota, members are free to propose an issue or not as they please.
