Shakespeare Festival Reads - The Quality of Mercy

Tuesday, June 16, 7pm
Left Bank Books Online Meeting

THIS BOOK GROUP MEETING IS BEING MOVED ONLINE. EMAIL shane.m@left-bank.com FOR MEETING LINK.

Join Shakespeare Festival Reads for a reading group discussion of The Quality of Mercy by Peter Brook!

In The Quality of Mercy, one of the world's most revered theatre directors reflects on a fascinating variety of Shakespearean topics. In this sequence of essays--all but one published here for the first time--Peter Brook debates such questions as who was the man who wrote Shakespeare's plays, why Shakespeare is never out of date, and how actors should approach Shakespeare's verse. He also revisits some of the plays which he has directed with notable brilliance, such as King Lear, Titus Andronicus and, of course, A Midsummer Night's Dream. Taken as a whole, this short but immensely wise book offers an illuminating and provocative insight into a great director's relationship with our greatest playwright.
