Shakespeare on Film "The Tempest"

Thursday, November 29, 2018

This month's film is The Tempest. Dr. Robert Dugan will introduce the play with a brief background and orientation. “Shakespeare is fun,” he says, “and profound because the plays are so resilient and adaptable. There are no definitive or final versions, so they remain alive and relevant.” For centuries there have been countless different interpretations of the plays. They are constantly revealing themselves in light of new perspectives and varied settings, from the Victorian Era to the twenty first century. “You can do anything to Shakespeare,” Dr. Dugan says, “except change the words. Once you alter the language, it is no longer Shakespeare.” After the screening, there will be an opportunity for impressions and sharing. Over the course of the past three years, Such Sweet Thunder has screened 28 Shakespeare plays on roughly a monthly basis. As in the past, we'll be taking a break for the holidays. The series will resume in 2019
