Romeo & Juliet — Discussion 1pm

Please join us on the Great Lawn out­side the White­horn Library, Cale­don Vic­to­riaC­i­ty at 1pm SLT today, Thurs­day, for a 2hr dis­cus­sion of William Shake­speare’s clas­sic tragedy of star-crossed young love, Romeo and Juli­et.

Bel­li­cose Tybalt, fan­ci­ful Mer­cu­tio, the bawdy Nurse, the com­pas­sion­ate Fri­ar, the ten­der and trag­ic lovers, the proud Capulets and the haughty Mon­tagues, each strut and fret their hour upon the stage in Shake­speare’s end­less­ly pop­u­lar, end­less­ly rein­ter­pret­ed tale of young love’s pow­er and pathos.

Maybe you pre­fer West Side Sto­ry or the Vic­to­ri­an ver­sions with the naughty bits miss­ing. Maybe you’d like to talk about the imagery of light and dark, or the equiv­a­lence of love and death in the play. Is Juli­et too reliant on patri­ar­chal fig­ures? What­ev­er, lets hear about it!

All are wel­come at this dis­cus­sion, whether you have read the play or not. TP to the Vic­to­riaC­i­ty hub and fol­low the mark­er you’ll get from this SLURL:

SL Shake­speare Sum­mer is a project of Radio Riel, Riel Events and the Cale­don Library, and is made pos­si­ble by fund­ing from the Foun­da­tion for Rich Con­tent – and by lis­ten­ers like you.
