Each semester we read aloud and discuss 3 or 4 plays using an integrated approach which allows everyone to participate.

Participant volunteers will each present a brief background of each play and playwright before reading begins.

This semester we’ll read:

  •  Life is a Dream by Pedro Calderon de la Barca,
  • The School for Scandal by Richard Sheridan,
  • Lysistrata by Aristophanes, and
  • You Can’t Take it With You by Kaufman and Hart.
