Shakespeare Unplugged - Demystifying Shakespeare Theatre Workshop
Ever wondered what Shakespeare's all about? Want to try Shakespearean acting?
In this 8-week introduction to Shakespeare, you'll meet some of his major plays and genres (drama, comedy, tragedy, and historical). You'll gain an understanding of Shakespeare's context and the influences on his work, as well as his own life, and become familiar with some of his biggest characters - like Hamlet, Othello, Macbeth, and their respective partners, Ophelia, Desdemona and Lady Macbeth, along with the likes of Prince Hal, Falstaff, Bottom, and many more.
Plus, best of all, you'll put your newly acquired knowledge to good use by working towards a theatrical performance of Shakespearean scenes in the final week of the course. You'll face the challenges of Shakespeare head-on, and hopefully walk away with a newfound love of the Bard and his work.
