Book Club

SHAKESPEARE DALLAS BOOK CLUB

Shakespeare Dallas Book Club is led by our very own Associate Artistic Director Jenni Stewart along with actor/scholar T.A. Taylor. Previous works explored have included Romeo and Juliet, The Merchant of Venice and Hamlet. Book Club gatherings are comfortable, fun, and promise great discussions. We meet weekly across four sessions to read and discuss one of Shakespeare’s plays. The book is provided in advance and meetings are currently held on Zoom.

 

 

SEPTEMBER/OCTOBER BOOK CLUB: MEASURE FOR MEASURE

Measure for Measure, written between 1603 and 1604, is seen as one of Shakespeare’s problem plays due to its shift in mood. Vienna is beset with brothels and loose morality, so it’s up to the Duke to provide some divine intervention.

Where: Virtual event on Zoom 
Cost: $165 for members | $195 for non-members

NOVEMBER BOOK CLUB: TROILUS AND CRESSIDA

Troilus and Cressida swear they will always be true to one another. But in the seventh year of the siege of Troy, their innocence is tested and exposed to the savage corrupting influence of war with tragic consequences.
