Shakespeare in the Tudor Age
With OLLI At Berkshire Community College
July 14th-21st, 2019 | Maximum Group Size: 25 Participants | Availability: Open
Join us for a celebration of William Shakespeare’s life and times. Together we will spend a week in Oxford and Stratford-upon-Avon taking a close look at the Bard himself, and the historical context in which he lived and worked.
We start in Oxford, the quintessential university town with 38 colleges dating back to the 13th century. Our Oxford stay will feature a walking tour, lectures on Shakespeare from distinguished Oxford dons, dinner at the Ashmolean Museum, and an evensong service at Christ Church Cathedral. Next, we move on to Stratford, Shakespeare’ birthplace. Here we will see three Shakespeare productions in the Royal Shakespeare Company’s two gorgeous, refurbished theatres.
The tour will be accompanied by Philip McKnight, who lectures in "Shakespeare and the Law" at Williams College.
