Shakespeare and his times

Gain a deeper understanding of Shakespeare from Kate Ridgewell, who majored in Theatre Performance at College of the Canyons and has studied Shakespeare at the Royal Academy of Dramatic Art (RADA) in London. This semester we will be focusing on Henry V, reading the play as we discuss the real history behind the man who was King of England. As we compare Shakespeare’s rendition of the play to actual history, we will explore what liberties were taken with fact and what would lead Shakespeare to make the storytelling choices he did. Students will emerge from this class with a greater understanding of both Shakespeare’s work and history itself.

Ages: 12+yo.
