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:

  • The Comedy of Errors by Shakespeare,
  • Blithe Spirit by Noel Coward,
  • The Barber of Seville by Beaumarchais, and
  • The Importance of Being Earnest by Oscar Wilde.
