We have chosen to usually watch in turn a comedy, a tragedy and a history play, although we now only have one History play we have not seen..

We watch a variety of productions on DVD including from the Globe Theater, National Theater, Royal Shakespeare Company, BBC and Channel 4, and films.

~January Timon of Athens

For the past two years our U3A colleague Diane has been a guest at a meeting and has shared her knowledge and facilitated discussions. We have looked at 'Shakespeare and Gender' and 'Shakespeare's discussion on what makes a good leader'.
