|COURSE No.||WEEK||AM||PM||FULL DAY||FEE||STATUS|
On this course, play reading may lead to role playing, maybe hesitantly, maybe with panache! Your backdrop is Shakespeare's universal portrayals of love and doubt, joy and foolishness, friendship and gulling, jealousy, rivalry, hatred, cruelty and murderous envy. Extracts are provided from Much Ado About Nothing, A Midsummer Night's Dream, A Winter's Tale and Romeo and Juliet. Offstage and uninvited, Hamlet may wait in the wings. Philosophers' comments may add to the reading, action and discussion, enriched by one or two video clips of acclaimed film or TV productions.
