2021 Workshops for Adults

Shakespeare Off the Page: Henry V Out Loud

Shakespeare Off the Page: Henry V Out Loud

The nerdy-coolest book club / Shakespeare geek session returns with another deep dive: this time we’re reading Henry V…and when we say reading, we mean it! For the first time the group will be experiencing one of these plays by reading it aloud the way actors do, except without getting all that messy “acting” all over the carpet. Safe from judgment (and most importantly, from audiences), we’ll divvy up the roles scene by scene and see what happens. No preparation necessary.

April 10 and 17, 2021

Now, for some reading Shakespeare brings back nightmares of that one ex-nun/former coach who taught Freshman English. But digging into these plays and treating them like the playscripts they are can be a lot of grown-up fun once you unlock some of the tricky bits in a casual, snack’n’chat, no-test-on-the-reading setting. So resident Kentucky Shakespeare actor/dramaturg (pronounced: professional nerd) Gregory Maupin will lead a group through these sessions that can help you get the most out of reading Shakespeare on your own, before a show/movie, or with a group of other weirdos who enjoy this kind of thing, too*.

*This is primarily a series aimed at normal, decent people, but actors are not unwelcome.

Here’s what some past participants had to say:

“Greg knows WAY too much to fit into 3 or 4 sessions, but…I am jazzed about further DIY exploration.”

“Greg’s workshop is great for Shakespeare nerds and newbies alike. I’m more of a newbie and ended up reading Richard II just for kicks–and understanding it. It’s the most unpretentious Shakespeare group you’ll ever be a part of, and so much better than 10th-grade English class (sorry, Mrs. Range).”
