Course Schedule – Fall 2023 / Performing Arts / SHAKESPEARE: THE WINTER’S TALE
Coordinators: Roy Clary, Jim Brook, Ellie Schaffer
The class will read aloud and discuss The Winter’s Tale. It is one of Shakespeare’s most daring and outlandish plays.
Something of an emotional roller coaster, it mixes tragedy, comedy, trickery, and romance. Its excesses include one of the most bizarre stage directions of all time, “Exit pursued by a bear.”
The Folger Library Edition is the preferred text.
