Shakespeare and the Company He Keeps
A five-day summer school looking at the playwright, his plays, Warwickshire locations and the RSC
Tutor: Trudy Hillier
We regret that registrations are no longer being taken for this summer school
This course is about a Warwickshire man - Shakespeare. We will study his early life in Stratford-upon-Avon and Warwickshire, his theatre in London: the plays, the space and the audience and we will consider the evolution of the company that ensures his enduring legacy – the Royal Shakespeare Company - including a visit to a play in the Royal Shakespeare Theatre. The course will combine lectures and tutor-led informal discussions with afternoons in Kenilworth and Stratford. If you’re interested in Shakespeare or have always wanted to understand what all the fuss is about then you will be most welcome.
