DO IT OURSELVES READING -- TROILUS & CRESSIDA
Rodney Hakim is having another of his Shakespeare readings for everyone. Attendees can choose to participate in the reading, or just observe and listen in. Here's his letter with the details:
Shakespeare Readings – October 2006
What: William Shakespeare’s “Troilus and Cressida”
Why: “Troilus and Cressida” is one of Shakespeare’s most criminally neglected plays, as it is both an elegant and brutal account of the Trojan War. Shakespeare casts a wide net here, covering the doomed romance between the titular lovers, the conflict between the great warriors Achilles and Hector, the deviousness of such leaders as Ulysses, and the merciless pandering of bodies and souls throughout. It’s a play rich with wonderful characters, monologues, and epigrams.
When: Monday, October 30, 2006 @ 7:30pm
Where: Barnes & Noble Bookstore
Country Glen Center, 91 Old Country Rd
Carle Place, NY 11514
(same complex as Tower Records, across the way from Roosevelt Field Mall)
We will meet on the second floor by the windows.
Who: Everyone is encouraged to attend. We have readers of all experience levels, so it’s a fun and easy way to brush up your Shakespeare. Attendees can choose to participate in the reading, or just observe and listen in.
How: Just show up, and copies of the text will be provided. For more information, you can e-mail me or visit my website.
