    Understanding Shakespeare:
    Henry IV, Part 1 and The Comedy of Errors

    This class will prepare us to fully enjoy the two 2011 summer Shakespeare Santa Cruz Festival plays. In Henry IV, Part 1, a History play dramatizing the beginning of the 14th and 15th century War of the Roses, we will be intrigued with the powerful King and father, who much like some fathers today is frustrated with his son Hal and his lack of responsibility as heir apparent. And we will be entertained by the completely irresponsible, hard living, "discretion is the better part of valor" comic Falstaff.

    The Comedy of Errors, today one of Shakespeare's most lively comedies, puts us in the middle of the mad antics of two sets of twins and much hilarious word play and confusion. We will compare video clips and explore, question, and discuss the plots, characters, motives, and conflicts in each play.

    Class will include informal lecture with comparative video highlights, discussion and special guest speakers from the Shakespeare Santa Cruz productions. There will be no papers or tests, and an optional complimentary backstage tour of the outdoor Shakespeare Santa Cruz stage is included. Please bring a copy of the plays to class (Signet or Folger paperback editions are recommended, but optional) and please read at least part of the plays before we discuss them.
