Join the Friends in the Community Room on Thursday, July 11 @ 7 p.m. for a lively presentation on Shakespeare’s play The Merry Wives of Windsor. Linda Emerick, local resident, Friends member, retired English teacher and Shakespeare scholar will provide some intriguing, if apocryphal, background information. The story will be told. The evening includes scene readings by New Castle resident, Jim Whisman and former student of theatre at Cab Calloway School of the Arts, Sean McGuire. Shakespeare insults will be created by and flung at all members of the audience!! So… come play!!
The Merry Wives of Windsor is a real romp of a Shakespeare comedy and is characterized by a feminist theme throughout. The play features additional themes of outsiders and jealousy.
The presentation is just in time for the opening of the Delaware Shakespeare Festival at Rockwood Mansion on July 12 thru July 28. Information on the festival will be shared at this program.
Attendance is limited to 50. Please register at Reference desk or call to register 302.328.1995 or email firstname.lastname@example.org by July 6.
