Instructor: Glenn Stuart

Tuesdays, 1:30 – 3:30 PM | Oct 10 – 31 @ Baker Free Library, Bow 

This is a play about people searching…for home, community, love, and self. Often funny but rooted in tragedy; it is joyous and life-affirming…full of yearning, grief and loss… an intriguing play.

We will view two distinct productions of Twelfth Night: the 1996 film directed by Trevor Nunn and featuring Ben Kingsley, Imogen Stubbs and Helen Bonham Carter and the 2017 Royal Shakespeare Company stage production directed by Christopher Luscombe. Hopefully our conversations will lead us not only to a deeper understanding of this deceivingly simple yet decidedly complicated play.
