June 27 from 6:00 – 7:30 pm
Following the Opera House Shakespeare Festival in Elgin, join community members for a conversation about the festival, about the bard himself, and about key Shakespearean poems, soliloquies, and insults. Participants of all experience levels are welcome, from “Egad! I think I hate him” through the Shakespeare geek most likely to cosplay the Fool from King Lear. Participants are welcome to lug their Riverside Shakespeare, to bring an electronic device with access to the plays, and/or to bring paper copies of particular passages to discuss. Shakespeare games are also welcome. The host will provide additional materials and options. No-host bar.
