Shakespeare at Christmas

Shakespeare at Christmas – Measure for Measure

Leadership, justice and morality are themes explored in Shakespeare’s topical play, Measure for Measure.

Vincentio, duke of Vienna, realises his lax rulership has begun to bear fruit with moral and social corruption rife in the state.  He deputises the righteous Lord Angelo to govern in his place and then, disguised as a friar, he sets out to discover the real extent of corruption and depravity and to intervene in the troubled lives of his subjects.  Thus, Shakespeare, in his inimitable way, “holds up a mirror to nature” allowing us to see both our own foibles and those of society at large.  During the three days, time will be spent reading the play, understanding the content and watching videos of the key scenes.

Why not join other students in the relaxing and homely environment of Brinscall Hall over the Christmas period.  We having been running this popular event for over 25 years now and many students return again and again to be inspired by Shakespeare’s words.

The charge for the three days is £40 which includes lunch and refreshments.  The charge for a single day’s attendance is £15.  The study days commence at 9.30 am and finish around 4.30 pm each day.  It would be helpful to bring a copy of Measure for Measure.

Accommodation is available at the Hall on the 28th and 29th December at £10 per night per person.  Please indicate that you will be staying over when booking.  No activities will be arranged in the evenings.
