Group Introduction and "A Midsummer Night's Dream"

  • This location is shown only to members

This will be an opportunity to meet and catch up, and get introduced. I am planning the first play to study and possibly go and see to be "A Midsummer Night's Dream" - showing this Fall in The Shakespeare Theatre, too. This will be mostly an introduction gathering, and planning a few Fall meetups - all related to this play.

Come and talk about what you would like to get out of this group - and  what you hope to bring to it (minimum requirement is basic: yourself) The aim is to showcase Shakespeare's accessibility to all, after all, at the Globe Theater - (photos in albums here) the standing room area - which was in the orchestra area today - was made up of the most ordinary of folks! My goal is to make Shakespeare accessible again - through just a little guidance. After these introductions, we will proceed to plan for the group's Fall gatherings! Look forward to meeting you.

    Afsaneh is a great teacher - serious about Shakespeare, very prepared and organized - but easy to laugh with

    Thanks for the insightful and learning experience, nourishing one’s soul. Much effort was put into the session’s preparation. Alas, bravo.

    Looking forward to seeing you all, tomorrow! I will be there from 6:30pm onwards - Do feel free to arrive earlier, leaving enough time for parking and walking over from you car or the metro, so we could start at 7pm. Panera has a parking lot right behind, and a paid garage there, too.
    I'm bringing you all individualized quotes from "A Midsummer Night's Dream" and hope you bring an open mind and heart - oh and a pen or pencil!

    I sent you all individual e-mails to for the above gathering and explaining Part I and Part II - I'm a pretty serious/organized person, and I really do want this to be a committed group, where you get something out of each and every get together!
    Again, look forward to seeing you!

      I am so looking forward to this! I'm heading to Maine for a few days and look forward to reading Shakespeare on the beach.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
