Shakespeare

Shakespeare Text & Context

Leader: Denise Legge Tel: 01604 407444

The group meets once a month on the first Friday between 10.30 and 12.30pm at the Leader's home.

We will study the plays of Shakespeare in terms of the text and also performances of the plays. 

We would read parts of a chosen play, and then view various filmed interpretations. 

I have the full canon of plays on film, produced by the BBC, and also other cinematic versions, which would form the basis of our discussions.

I have a longstanding interest in the social history of C16th England and have for many years been involved in living history interpretations of the period. 

As part of our meetings I will offer experience of the music of the period, and information about dress, food and general mores. 

I hope to organise visits of Shakespeare's Globe Theatre, at London Bankside, to enjoy plays in their authentic form.

Shakespeare for Pleasure

Leader: Nigel Warbis Tel: 07943 810965

2nd Monday of the month to beheld at Leader's home 10-12 noon.

Do you enjoy watching Shakespeare and would you like to learn more about his work but don't have the confidence to sign up for anything too academic? If so this could be the group for you. At the first meeting the group will share some of their experiences of Shakespeare and prepare a programme for the year. Thereafter, every month, each member will, by agreement, find out a little more about one aspect of the following month's topic to be shared with the rest of the group. Nothing too highbrow, nothing ‘academic’, just a chance to learn together and share and enjoy a love of Shakespeare
