APRIL IS SHAKESPEARE'S BIRTHDAY MONTH ~ FREE Speaker Series Guest 1 "A Door Opens" - The Shakespeare Speaker Series Begins The title of this Speaker Series refers to two things. First, the opening of the door of our theatre to anyone and everyone who has an interest in the world of Shakespeare. And, second, the sensation of walking across a threshold beyond which is a new vision...either something never seen before, or something familiar suddenly seen in a new way. Shakespeare is a door to a new way of expressing or comprehending emotion, a door to a world that paid much more attention to nature, to a passing moment, to eternity. Whether you are new to Shakespeare or a long-time fan, the goal of this Series is to bring you closer to Shakespeare and his work. We invite you to come explore Shakespeare with us! Sunday, April 13th 2pm Guest Speakers: Professor Lloyd Kermode and Professor Martine van Elk, professors of English at California State University Long Beach, and co-directors of the Center for Medieval and Renaissance Studies at CSULB. FREE! The presentation will be an hour, with time for questions, and a reception with the Speakers following the discussion.
