Each semester we read aloud and discuss 3 or 4 plays using an integrated approach which allows everyone to participate. A brief background of each play and playwright is presented by a volunteer from the group. Since we must purchase the scripts, there is a cost for materials (as yet undetermined). This semester we’ll read Cat on a Hot Tin Roof by Tennessee Williams, Cymbeline by William Shakespeare, The Farnsworth Invention by Aaron Sorkin, and if time allows, The Inspector General by Nikolai Gogol.
