|A Saturday with Shakespear ||Event date: April 9th, 2011|
|Hosted by Barony of Carolingia - Burlington, MA||Event Last Modified: April 4th, 2011|
|Come for a day of classes, Shakespeare and feast! |
The Baron's Players of Carolingia will be performing Measure for Measure in Burlington, MA on April 8 and 9. Information about our approach to the play and the public performance on the 8th (plus two stunning publicity pictures by Baron Aonghais Bruce in his role as professional photographer) is available at www.baronsplayers.org
We've taken a different approach to the play from most performances by treating it as a straight comedy and not as a "problem play".
Measure for Measure will be performed and a lovely feast by Lord Alexei will be prepared. There will be classes pertinent to the play and the day.
The play will begin at 3:30pm, and Feast will be at 6:30pm
We'll have four brief talks to give background that will help explain how we constructed our approach to the play.
Kali Harlansson - an overview of Central Europe during Shakespeare's time and how the English viewed it
Gwendolyn of Middlemarch - stock characters of Commedia dell'Arte
Cassandra Grey - the basis for her costume designs
Catrin o'r Rhyd For - how nuns behaved badly in Italy in period
