This class was a combination of reading/interpreting Shakespeare's works and acting/performing what we read. We read 12th Night, Henry the IV part one, As You Like It, MacBeth(Angels and ministers of grace defend us!), and Much Ado About Nothing. We also acted out and analyzed scenes from these plays. We took many class field trips to onsite theatres and coffee shops, and on the last week we left campus to go see Much Ado About Nothing(just remember to not drive like Maya).
