Understanding Shakespeare


Monday, July 24th, 6:00 p.m. - 7:00 p.m.

We've all heard of The Bard, we may have even seen some movies based on his plays -- but how well do we actually understand the plays?  Are you just nodding through the discussion, not really knowing what's going on? 

Well, it's time to get past the words and to the meaning of the plays! 
What is a monologue and why should I learn one?
The line sounds impressive and all, but what is she trying to say?
Did you know how many words and phrases are first found written in one of Shakespeare's plays?

The best way to learn is from the Bard himself -- or at least someone dressed like him!
