Imagine, if you will, a time of waves of viral infections preventing large community gatherings; a time of the emergence of a novel mass medium, spreading conspiracy theories; the constant threat of terrorism, population migration, economic upheaval, state surveillance and “The Crown”. This was Shakespeare’s time. We will enter this strange and unfamiliar time as we develop the practical skills required to understand, present and enjoy his work.

We will explore the shifting relationship between the performers and the audience. We will also investigate the important difference between “role” and “character" which will give the participants a simple schema to reveal the world of the play and characters’ place within it. We will also encounter Shakespeare’s wicked, wicked sense of humour.
