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. This semester we’ll read Tartuffe by Moliere, The Taming of the Shrew by Shakespeare, The Piano Lesson by August Wilson, and Witness for the Prosecution by Agatha Christie.
