Add a bit of literary romance to your Valentine’s Day. Join Jack Gilpin, actor; Joe Godfrey, playwright and actor; Elizabeth Hubbard, actor; and Ellen McCourt, Chair of the Board of the Irish Repertory Theatre for a reading of Shakespeare’s love sonnets, accompanied by wine, sweets, and a fire in the hearth.
Doug Winkel, long time Shepaug English Teacher and Play Director, will moderate informal discussions between sonnets and help the audience explore, among other things, the sonnet form, symbols, and the context and scope of Shakespeare’s love sonnets. The sonnets will be compiled in a booklet and given to everyone who attends. Audience participation, input, and questions are encouraged!
