Shakespeare – Exploring

Image generated by AI

There are many approaches to exploring Shakespeare: Play reading and Discussion; The Sonnets; Elizabethan Times; Contemporary Playwrights, and many more.

I consider Play reading the best introduction, and it's well suited to Zoom meetings but the group also covers other aspects as they wish.

You can enjoy the group at any level, like all u3a activities we learn together in a relaxed and supportive atmosphere.


Second and fourth Wednesday of the month from 2 to 4 pm
