Shakespeare's Way With Words

Presented by Elizabeth Shepherd –

Held in person (please view in-person requirements): 

This 5-week workshop is for actors who have some prior experience with Shakespeare, but are seeking an introduction to and exploration of Shakespeare’s Way With Words. Shakespeare the actor knows how to write for actors– his characters say what they are thinking and feeling at the very moment they are thinking and feeling it. Shakespeare holds the mirror up to Nature, then and now. Through Shakespeare’s monologues and scenes, you’ll learn how to liberate the poetry and feeling in yourself by hearing the verse as Shakespeare heard it when writing it: “in character.”
