Shakespeare Dallas has launched a new opportunity for our audiences to meet and discuss the plays being performed in our season. Ever wonder how a director prepares an abridged script of a Shakespeare play? What method of text analysis takes place to determine what is cut and what makes it onto the stage? If you missed out on our previous Book Clubs, you are invited to experience that process at our Book Club for Romeo and Juliet!

 

Led by Associate Artistic Director Jenni Stewart and actor/scholar T.A. Taylor, Book Club gatherings are comfortable, fun, and promise great discussions. The Book Club will meet for four sessions to read and discuss the upcoming play, provide a behind the scenes look at the production process, and receive an invitation to exclusive events.

 

Book Club: Romeo and Juliet

This play was written in 1595-6 and is set in Verona, Italy, at a time when a long-standing feud between two noble families - the Montagues and the Capulets - constantly breaks out into brawling on the streets. Prince Escalus, the ruler of Verona, threatens terrible punishment on anyone who takes part in further violence.
