Our group meets in each other’s homes on the 2nd and 4th Thursday afternoon of each month from 2-4pm. We read our chosen play, often watch the DVD of that play and we enjoy discussing plot, characters, language, historical setting and how the play often resonates with modern life. We also enjoy theatre trips to both professional and amateur productions and to live screenings at local cinemas. We recently enjoyed a visit to London to see Ben Elton’s comedy ‘Upstart Crow’, starring David Mitchell as Shakespeare.
None of us claims to be an expert on Shakespeare – we are simply keen to develop our appreciation and understanding of the Bard and to share our views and observations in a very friendly and relaxed atmosphere.
**We are not able to meet at the moment, but hope to do so in each other’s gardens or homes once restrictions are relaxed a little, while maintaining social distancing.
