What better way to while away your summer days than reading the Bard of Avon’s classic legends of love and romance… unless it’s reading his blood-curdling tales of deceit, betrayal, murder, and revenge! Or, perhaps a fantastic voyage, shipwrecked survivors, and discoveries of new worlds and old grudges…

Plunge into the world of Shakespeare this summer and find out why his plays continue to amuse, shock and enchant audiences, over 400 years after their first performances! Our five-week, online class will delve into Shakespeare’s London, Queen Elizabeth and King James’ courts, political and religious intrigues, witches, ghosts, and brave new worlds.

We’ll begin with A Midsummer Night’s Dream, conclude with The Tempest, and in between, you get to select a comedy, history, and tragedy from a variety of options:  

Comedies:
- The Taming of the Shrew
- The Merchant of Venice
- Much Ado About Nothing
- Measure for Measure

Histories:
- Richard III
- Henry IV, Part 1
- Henry V

Tragedies:
- Hamlet
- Othello
- Macbeth
