Much Ado About Nothing

Jealousy, that “green-eyed monster,” is a powerful emotion that can drive people to extremes of despair and destruction. Although akin to envy, wanting what someone else has, jealousy is a fearful anxiety about losing someone’s affections to another. It seems to grow out of personal insecurities and feeds on fear of loss of reputation and self-esteem. As we see in Shakespeare, a character driven by this powerful emotion can lose control and fall into obsession leading to tragedy.

The plays we will read this year hinge on the outcome of this destructive force. In Much Ado about Nothing, Oct. 16 - Nov. 13, 2017 “the worst returns to laughter."

This will be followed by Othello Jan 8- Feb 5, 2018, and The Winter’s Tale April 9-May 7. 

Wayne Valleau will be using his passion for Shakespeare to help members increase their understanding of and appreciation of the plays.  Pre-reading the play is helpful but not mandatory.

Places available. Drop-ins welcome.
