What we're about

Our regular meet up is at the Birmingham & Midland Institute, Margaret Street, B3 3BS exploring Theatre through the eyes of Shakespeare. We meet most Tuesday evenings, 19.00 to 21.30 . Please check on our website before turning up in case there is no meeting that week:

http://www.shakespearebirmingham.co.uk/#!noticeboard/c19o2

In the sessions we take a look at the plays of Shakespeare; we read them, workshop them, and then we discuss what we've discovered. It's fun and a great way to meet like-minded people, as well as get a greater appreciation of what Shakespeare can bring us.

The sessions are open to everyone, regardless of experience - the only requirement is that you have a interest in Theatre (and hopefully Shakespeare!). A contribution to the session’s running costs of what you can afford is requested, the suggested amount is £5.00.

If you would like to take part, just email us at shakespearebirmingham@gmail.com and let us know who you are.

Best wishes. Frank Bramwell & Mary Gilbert

Play reading group - The Winter's Tale by William Shakespeare

Birmingham & Midland Institute

The Play Considered either as a comedy or a romance, Shakespeare's The Winter's Tale contains his most famous and challenging stage direction: 'Exit, pursued by a bear'. The Winter's Tale is a play by William Shakespeare originally published in the First Folio of 1623. Although it was grouped among the comedies, some modern editors have relabelled the play as one of Shakespeare's late romances. Some critics consider it to be one of Shakespeare's "problem plays" because the first three acts are filled with intense psychological drama, while the last two acts are comedic and supply a happy ending. Taking Part Weekly sessions every Tuesday evening, 6.30 to 9.00, Birmingham & Midland Institute, Margaret Street, Birmingham, B3 3BS. A contribution is required to cover the session costs - BMI members £3.00, non-BMI members £6.00. It would be great to see you there.
