____________________________________________ TUESDAY TALKS - A monthly series of free talks of interest to Agers in Place Downtown...
Shakespeare ON Love
Love Through the Words of Shakespeare
Are you a Shakespeare enthusiast, or someone who avoids Shakespeare as dry and unapproachable? Whichever you are, or someone in between, this pre-holiday treat is for you. Our Tuesday Talk will feature actors performing excerpts from some of the most famous plays and poems of Shakespeare, centering on the theme of Love. And, to enhance the experience, the players and director will speak about Shakespeare’s text and offer some insight into how actors approach these beautiful and challenging words. There will be time for questions and discussion.
