Normally, our group meets in each other’s homes or gardens on the second and fourth Thursday afternoon of each month from 2.00pm to 4.00pm, but during the pandemic we have been meeting on zoom every Thursday (apart from the 3rd Thursday of the month). We read our chosen play and we enjoy discussing plot, characters, language, historical setting and how the play often resonates with modern life.
We have enjoyed theatre trips to both professional and amateur productions and to live screenings at local cinemas. Just before the first lockdown, we enjoyed a trip 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.
Our next visit is to Tolethorpe to see ‘Love’s Labour’s Lost’.
