Tuesdays, November 2 through December 14 (no class Thanksgiving Week)
In Person: 516 8th Street SE, 3rd Floor

Instructor:  Colleen Kennedy
Prior Experience: Not required.

Focusing on Shakespeare’s works, we will concentrate on the formal aspects of the script. Participants will learn the basics of script analysis for directors, actors, designers, dramaturgs, and spectators of Shakespearean performance through in-depth analysis of monologues, partner-based exercises, and editing exercises. We will attend to both the micro concerns of a play text (meter, rhyme, syntax, etc.) and the macro issues (construction, and theme/meaning).
