Shakespeare’s moody Dane “Hamlet” takes center stage in this fall’s Shakespeare Aloud. Come and read with us some of Shakespeare’s most poetic and profound speeches as we explore what’s really “rotten in Denmark.” After “Hamlet” we embark on a lighter and frothier exploration of Shakespeare’s “Comedy of Errors.” This play uses farce, slapstick and mistaken identity to tell the story of two sets of identical twins and the mishaps and mayhem that must surely follow them. Inexpensive copies of each play will be available at class time. Leadership of the class will rotate among participants.
