Shakespeare's World

Your year-long sequence will analyze the world of William Shakespeare. Through the use of representative plays, you will begin by placing Shakespeare’s play within their literary context, followed by an examination of the social, religious and political background of the period, and end by exploring the plays as performances and as production. The sequence will culminate in a mini production put together by you and your peers.

Your year-long sequence will fulfill the following 3 College Breadth Requirements or graduations requirements: Literature, Humanities, Fine Arts (Literature, History, and Theater).
