Shakespeare Reading Group -- first meeting 1 p.m. Nov. 23 at Plymouth District Library

From Prashant Andrade, SE MI Shakespeare Reading Group founder:

Would you like to be part of a group that is trying to understand themselves, human nature and the world we live in better?

Would you like to have fun, companionship and recapture some of that loss of community that everyone seems to complain about?

And all this for free? In these cost-conscious times? Yes!

We will meet once a month (on a Saturday or Sunday) or more frequently if the group members wish (at the Plymouth District Library). The first meeting will be at 1 p.m. November 23 in the Waldorf Room of the Plymouth District Library. We'll read the Scottish play.

What the group will do:
Spend most of the meeting reading a play aloud with assigned parts in a supportive non-judgmental atmosphere (following the method of Dr. Gareth Morgan of the University of Texas/Austin Sunday Shakespeare Group)

What the group may do:
Watch films or recordings of the plays and attend performances at the Michigan Shakespeare Festival and Stratford
Set up Shakespeare reading groups in local prisons and schools
