Shakespeare Off the Page

The nerdy-coolest book club / Shakespeare geek session returns with another read-it-aloud-then-chat-about-it session, this time with Richard II (that’s “the Second” just to be clear). Not actors performing, but a bunch of people who enjoy Shakespeare seeing how it feels to let it roll around the palate like fine wine. Join us, won’t you?

August 20 & 27, 2022

1:00-4:00pm

The play is available in various forms via CarmichaelsBookstore.com.

 

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.”
