Based in the discipline of literature and engaging diverse community partners, Delaware Shakespeare’s “THE MERRY WIVES OF WINDSOR” WEEKEND INTENSIVE will explore the relevancy of William Shakespeare’s “The Merry Wives of Windsor” to the lives of a broad spectrum of Delawareans. Delaware Shakespeare will gather 30-40 participants from community partner organizations over two days to explore the themes of “The Merry Wives of Windsor” and then, via moderated discussion and theatrical learning activities, create short responses to the themes which participants find resonate with contemporary life. The objective is to foster conversation about and connections to Shakespeare with populations the larger public does not normally associate with Shakespearean insights. The culmination of the weekend will be a free performance by community members at 5 p.m. on Sunday, May 5th.
