The Rockland Public Library presents a reading from the Rockland Shakespeare Society, Thursday, April 29, at 6:30 p.m., on Zoom. This event is free and open to all.
The Rockland Shakespeare Society will present scenes from The Merchant of Venice, one of Shakespeare's best-known plays.
“The society has been engaged in an in-depth study of this fascinating play and looks forward to presenting key scenes to the audience,” said RPL, in a news release.
The members participating are: Jim Trolles, Joseph Coté, Peter Conant, Lisa Goodridge, Mary Alice Bird, and John Bird. Directed by Carole Leporati.
Each year, beginning in September, the Society explores a tragedy or drama and then moves on to a study of one of Shakespeare's comedies or problem plays. Study of each play involves a reading of the play over a five meeting schedule, a scholarly paper relating to each act delivered by a member of the group, and lively discussions of topics relating to the play.
