Have you ever watched a Shakespeare play, but felt there was probably (definitely) loads you missed?
We think that when most people go see Shakespeare they enjoy it, but understand approximately 40% of what is being said … at a push!
So we decided to create an experience that would enable people to see a Shakespeare play and really, truly, appreciate it. Over five evenings you and a small group will read through a Shakespeare play, guided by Claire Cartwright - actress and Shakespeare specialist.
And don’t worry - we’re not at school anymore. FWS is an informal learning experience that will nourish your brain while you relax, have a good time and make new friends.
5-8 people per group.
Usually 1 night a week for 6 weeks
5 x 2 hour get-togethers (7-9pm); one Act per session
6th session we see the play we have studied
During the Covid 19 outbreak, the course will be run via ZOOM
