Unlocking the Secrets of Shakespeare
In this hour-long workshop, David Morden will use the text of The Tempest to illustrate the beauty of Shakespeare’s writing by analyzing his verse and prose and showing how The Bard left clues about how to perform his plays within the words themselves.
This exploration of Shakespeare’s skill will give participants a greater appreciation of why he is considered the greatest English language playwright. For The Rogue’s audience members, the workshop offers a rare insight into the inner workings of Shakespearean verse. For actors and theatre artists, this workshop will introduce participants to a new way of analyzing Shakespeare’s verse and will offer a greater facility with his words.
Free; reservations not required

Mr. Medine has directed six summer institutes on Shakespeare and Milton which were funded by the National Endowment for the Humanities; total funding from NEH for the institutes is over a million dollars.
