ISC Shakespeare Gym
Inside Shakespeare’s Tavern

Exploring Act 2 : Scene 4 of 1 Henry 4

The Shakespeare Gym provides an ongoing community in which to hone your skills in performing Shakespeare at a basic level. No experience necessary—just an interest in exploring Shakespeare more deeply!

This Gym, Inside Shakespeare’s Tavern, is a deep dive into one of Shakespeare’s most famous tavern scenes with two ninety-minute rehearsals a week for three weeks and a performance for friends and family. Participants are expected to memorize their parts.

Discover what Shakespeare tells you, the Reader or Actor, from inside the text. Explore it deeply, looking at the rhetorical figures, the rhythm of the lines, the rhyme, the prose or verse, the internal stage directions, the forms of address, the social rank juxtapositions, the emphases that Shakespeare has built in, the irony and subtext, and more. Then take what you discover and put it into action.

Schedule:

Rehearsals: 4 to 5:30 p.m. on
     Tuesdays, July 3, 10, 17 at the Crows’ Nest (7 Caliente Road, at La Tienda in Eldorado)                 
     Thursdays, July 5, 12, 19, 26 at the Universalist Unitarian Church (107 W. Barcelona in Santa Fe)
