Description

Shakespeare at Kalamazoo's evening event will be a reading of Carole Levin’s original play, Elizabeth 1: To Speak or Use Silence. This performance and the discussion to follow it will explore Elizabeth’s own representation of her queenship and identity. The play weaves passages from Shakespeare’s texts together with excerpts from historical speeches and letters written by Elizabeth, Essex, Mary Queen of Scots, and others, thus providing rich opportunity for discussing the ways in which Shakespeare’s works reflect history, and vice-versa. Parts will be read both by pre-selected participants, and by interested session attendees. Christina Gutierrez-Dennehy
