Shakespeare for the Elizabethan Impaired
For those who hated Hamlet and loathed Lear in school, help is at hand! Shakespeare for the Elizabethan Impaired is an entertaining, interactive 6-week class designed to reintroduce the Bard to those who didn't appreciate him the first time around. It's also fun for those who just enjoy discussing the plays.
Learn about Shakespeare's three audiences, his different uses of language, his playhouse—and most of all, his enduring impact on the world. We will share "Shakespeare News of the Week," and class members can help read the plays aloud. Plays covered include "A Midsummer Night's Dream," "Hamlet," and "Richard III."
Instructor Janis Hashe created and has taught this class for more than 20 years. She is a professionally trained performer, director, writer and producer.
Please bring to class copies of “ A Midsummer Night's Dream," "Hamlet," and "Richard III. Folgers Shakespeare Library versions preferred. Most can be easily found in used book stores.
