Shakespeare Comedy of Errors including a trip to RSC Stratford-Upon-Avon
This course will appeal to those with a love of Literature, Shakespeare, comedy, theatre
The course will explore Shakespeare’s highly entertaining The Comedy of Errors. We will discuss the language, themes and dramatic possibilities of the play, and then follow it up with viewing of a production of the play at the RSC. More broadly, we will also consider the structure, characterisation, and themes of Shakespearean comedy, comparing, in particular, The Comedy of Errors with Twelfth Night. The course is open to all and students would be expected to have ideally read The Comedy of Errors, and, if possible, Twelfth Night before the course start.
