PP’s Year with Shakespeare Moves on to “The Henrys”

In What's the Buzz by Dennis Abrams

By Dennis Abrams

We’ve read two of Shakespeare’s earliest comedies -– The Two Gentlemen of Verona and The Taming of the Shrew.  We’ve read his first and most gruesome tragedy, Titus Andronicus. Now, please join us as we begin our journey through Shakespeare’s study of England’s War of the Roses with King Henry VI, Part 1. Professor and noted author Marjorie Garber says of it that it is “a lively, smart, sophisticated and well-designed play, full of strong characters and fast-paced action.”  Really…what more could you want from a classic?

It’s never too late to join us at The Play’s the Thing.
