In “Measure for Measure,” the class will delve into how power may not corrupt—but it certainly brings out the worst. This is a remarkably current play (based on a theme of “Judge not, lest ye be judged”) dealing with sexual license, harassment, and cover-up. We will then explore Shakespeare’s version (probably a collaboration) of the Tudors, in Henry VIII. Inexpensive copies of each play will be available at class time. Participants are welcome to volunteer as leaders.

*This course continues to meet during the intersession on the date following the asterisk above.
