Young Shakespeare: Seven Early Works

Now in it's fourth "semester", our Shakespeare Book Club invites you to join a passionate group of Shakespeare fans as Capital Classics Artistic Associate and Professor of Theatre Geoffrey Sheehan moderates group discussions of Shakespeare's earliest works.

In "Young Shakespeare: Seven Early Works," our discussions will focus on the history of Shakespeare's early plays, along with literary elements, such as story, theme, and character.  We will also discuss theatrical staging ideas inspired by the texts.
