Understanding Shakespeare: “The Comedy of Errors”

Thursdays, September 12th – October 10th at 6:30 pm
Main Library
shakespeareThis will be a five-session program on how to understand Shakespeare’s plays. We will start our discussion with Act 1 of Shakespeare’s comedy The Comedy of Errors. Then in the following four weeks we will discuss the play one act at a time. This program will allow the participants to put the play in a variety of contexts, such as its relationship to his other works and to the modern existential world. Tom Bulger, Shakespeare Scholar and retired professor from Siena College will lead this workshop.

Copies of  The Comedy of Errors will be available at the circulation desk. Please have Act One read for the September 12th discussion. Register online.
