Ripon & District

Shakespeare Workshop

The Shakespeare Workshop Group was formed at the time of the inauguration of Ripon & District U3A and over the years has studied a good number of Shakespeare's plays. Our aim was to examine many of the plays of William Shakespeare in order to set them in their historical and dramatic context, to analyse the relationship between the characters, and to re-enact selected scenes. No previous experience was necessary, but simply an interest in the work of our greatest playwright.

However, the Group is now in abeyance for the time being. Should it form again, previous members will be advised and new members welcomed.

The Tutor is:
John Colston, BA [Open], MA [Leeds],
Post Grad Dip Shakespeare & Theatre [B'ham].
