Play Readings: Shakespeare’s Comedy of Errors

Drea Lee
Average rating:5.0Number of reviews:(144)
Tackle the farce Comedy of Errors from an actor's point-of-view in this cold reading class for fans of William Shakespeare.

Class experience

My hope is that every student that takes this class will leave more comfortable with Shakespeare’s language, with better cold reading skills, and with a desire to experience more of Shakespeare’s work. 
I have extensive experience performing and directing Shakespeare plays. I have directed productions with mixed groups of middle school and high school students ages 12 and up and it is always great fun. I think that theatrical readings are a great way for students to explore a variety of roles in a pressure-free environment. 
Homework Offered
No work is required outside of class.
Assessments Offered
This class requires active participation. Students will be assessed on their willingness to explore the language and discuss the theatrical possibilities of the play.
Grades Offered
I highly recommend headphones or earbuds with a mic for this class. A link to the script will be available in the classroom before our first read-through. If students would prefer a hard copy we will be reading from the Folger version.

Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
This play features some bawdy humor and a character who is a courtesan. When dealing with problematic aspects of Shakespeare’s plays, I like to discuss the historical context as well as talk about ways modern performers and acting companies are grappling with and challenging these concepts in contemporary productions. We will discuss how we can approach the texts as actors of our time, how to make choices that reflect our values, and discuss ways a contemporary company might adapt the play for a modern audience.
We will read from the Folger digital text for this class. A link to the web version will be available for students in the classroom. Learners are welcome to purchase a physical copy of the Folger text, but this is not required.

Good morrow to my fellow actors, writers, and literary scholars! I'm Ms. Drea (she/her) aka "Director of Chaos" and I'm obsessed with literary and performing arts! They are my absolute passions and I love to share them with everyone I meet.
