The Shakespeare Group

The aim of the group is to read through some of Shakespeare’s plays together, and enjoy them!  It isn’t intended to be very academic, nor does it involve acting. It is just reading the parts aloud.

After a very brief introduction to the play we read it through in ‘bite-sized chunks’. We then go back over what we have read to clarify the language, discuss it, highlight bits we particularly liked, and share and improve our understanding – then on to the next chunk. We share knowledge and enjoy each other’s company.

One important thing is for us all to be reading from the same version, so I bulk buy a dozen or so copies from Amazon. Currently they are roughly £2 to £2.50 each. You get your copy to keep.

We meet on the second and fourth Thursday of each month in the home of one of our members from 10.00 a.m. until 12.00.
