Monday April 6th BRUSH UP YOUR SHAKESPEARE - POSTPONED
Everyone knows Romeo and Juliet, Twelfth Night, Hamlet, Macbeth, and Richard III (or knows of them at least). Even Richard II, As You Like It, and Antony and Cleopatra can be said to be well-known William Shakespeare plays. But what about the others? He wrote or collaborated on nearly forty, after all. Margaret McDonaugh invites us to have a look at some of the least-known plays by the Bard.
Monday May 4th LET ME COUNT THE WAYS - POSTPONED
Presented in conjunction with the Guernsey Literary Festival, an evening of sonnets. Not just Shakespeare. From the Italian sonetto, which means "a little song," the sonnet is a popular classical form that has compelled poets for centuries. Traditionally, the sonnet is a fourteen-line poem written in iambic pentameter. The modern sonnet can often only be identified by the ghost imprint that haunts it, recognizable by the presence of 14 lines or even by name only. Come to listen or bring your own to read aloud. Free entry. Tickets from Guernsey Literary Festival website

Provisional A chance to develop some of the ideas that were explored in February, building towards devising a performance. Meet at 7:30 for a 7:45 start in The Lion's Den (upstairs at The Golden Lion in Market Street). Anyone is welcome. Free entry.
