After studying “Coriolanius” in the fall, we will go from Roman to English history in the spring with “Richard II.” This is the story of a king best known for his mishandling of money because of his love of extravagant living which leads to his deposition by Henry IV. Then we will go on to “Twelfth Night,” a story of separated twins. Before they are reunited, Olivia dresses as a man and falls in love with her employer while his love falls in love with her. Naturally all ends happily. Inexpensive copies of the plays will be available at class time. Come join us as we read and discuss the writings of the world’s greatest playwright.
