The Winter's Tale, Cymbeline, The Tempest, and Hamlet.
The characters of primary importance or interest in the play, though I care very much about the treatment of secondary characters that matter significantly in the play.
"He had the ability to put himself in your place, and then--to speak. Sympathetic knowledge of human nature we call it, and the gift of expression. Rarely, very rarely, do they hunt in couples." (G.L. Kittredge)
It's a good way to supplement one's own private readings of the plays and provides a way to connect with others that have insights worth sharing. It's a rather intense experience for which I found it advantageous to have read the play shortly beforehand. I'm glad to find this group and want to participate when I can.
