In this ongoing drop-in club, we discuss all things Shakespeare: writing, production, historical context, and even a few mysteries! Participants vote on the topic at each meeting, then we discuss and research for the rest of the hour.

Class experience

This class is taught in English.
Students will learn script analysis, critical reading and thinking skills, as well as collaborative planning and research
I hold a BA in Performing and Visual Arts with a focus in Early British Drama and Shakespeare and have won several awards for my work in this field. I have spent over 20 years studying and producing the works of Shakespeare and his contemporaries. I am also a trained gender and sexuality educator, certified facilitator, and active in the Pledge to End Racism and will have access to voices other than my own to educate around sensitive topics.

This class is for teens only - some of the material can be considered PG-13 due to the sense of humor and ignorance of medicine at the time these plays were written. Additionally, many of Shakespeare's shows contain racist, sexist, antisemitic, ableist, and xenophobic characters and overtones, whether by design or by the playwright's own cultural ignorance. We will not gloss over these topics; rather, we will examine them in the context of the time period as well as our current cultural context(s).
