This course examines a selection of Shakespeare's plays principally through scene-work and attendance at live performances. Short response papers, quizzes, and viewing of comparative scenes from video versions supplement this practical, stage-oriented approach. Opportunities for acting, directing, theatre research and reviewing.
Plays covered: Taming of the Shrew, Merchant of Venice, Twelfth Night, As You Like It, Hamlet, Measure for Measure, The Tempest.
Centerpiece of the course will be the residency of the Propeller Company from London with their high-energy productions of Taming of the Shrew and Twelfth Night (20-24 February). Students will have the opportunity to interact with members of the company and are guaranteed tickets at reduced prices.
