Shakespeare Reading Group, Part One

12/12/2018 - 6:30pm

This new book group will read aloud the plays of Shakespeare! No acting or Shakespeare experience required, just be willing to read aloud and appreciate the beauty of the language, the insights into human nature, the humor, compassion, anguish, and scope of Shakespeare's work. A few months ahead, we'll announce the title of the play to be read. To prepare, read the play or watch a performance. You can get a little familiarity with the script, maybe even enough to know which part(s) you will ask for at the meeting. Even if we all prepare, there will be some confusing lines, and we often have different editions. In that case, we’ll wing it. Remember to bring a copy of the scheduled play to the meeting, either paper or electronic.

This month, we'll read Twelfth Night, books available at King's or below. For this meeting, we'll be focusing on the first half. To begin each meeting, we’ll distribute parts. Longer parts will be split up over more than one person. We’ll read about half of the play aloud, take a break, and discuss. Click here to see our previous reads.
