Group Contact: Deborah Markham
We are a new group whose members are keen to re-discover the plays of Shakespeare and look at some modern interpretations. Each month a different member of the group chooses a play beforehand so we have a chance to familiarise ourselves with it before the meeting. Then we watch one of a series of entertaining and informative DVDs presented by a well known actor who gives his view of the themes of the play and shows extracts from various productions.
After our tea break, guided by that month’s leader we spend the remaining 45 minutes talking about the various aspects of what we have seen, with members sometimes producing their own notes to share on the imagery, historical background etc. This format has worked well for our first few meetings but there is plenty of scope to vary it as time goes on.
The group is fully subscribed and likely to remain so into next year but we would be happy to share our ideas to enable anyone on the waiting list to start a second group at a home address.
