5 Acts, 5 Tuesdays
Charleston, South Carolina, FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:
The mysteries of Hamlet have intrigued playgoers for over 400 years and inspired innumerable adaptations in 70 languages. This class will consider those enigmas of reason and action, love and power by looking at one act of the five-act drama each successive Tuesday night for five weeks beginning March 27th, from 5:30pm until 7:00pm.
“One if the main tenets of the Charleston Library Society is to inspire a passion for lifelong learning in our members and community,” says CLS Executive Director, Anne Cleveland. “To have Nan Morrison bring her Shakespearean class back to us with Hamlet is exciting and wonderful.”
In prior years, Professor Morrison has taught Shakespeare’s comedies and tragedies at the Library Society. This will be the first class taking an in-depth dive into a single play, but with the many twists and turns of Hamlet, discussion is sure to be lively and engaging through all five acts.
