Cancelled: Shakespeare’s Comedy

June 5, 2016 @ 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Instructor: Robert Wray
Cost: $50.00 Members | $60.00 Non-Members
1 Sundays, June 05, 2016 | 1:00 PM-4:00 PM

Limited to 11 students.

In this seminar we’ll examine the dramaturgy of William Shakespeare, with a focus on his wondrous comedy TWELFTH NIGHT. Within the microcosm of this work, we’ll look at how Shakespeare created character, developed story, and used language to fabricate a hilarious and yet heartbreaking world. In addition, we’ll ask ourselves what this play teaches us about the writer’s craft, and we’ll fashion exercises based on his techniques in order to sharpen and broaden our imaginative abilities.


Robert Wray is a graduate of the Iowa Playwrights Workshop where he was awarded both the Norman Felton and Zeta Phi Eta Memorial Scholarships. He has taught at the University of Virginia, the University of Iowa, and Cornell College and his work has been produced in New York, regionally, and abroad.
