Shakespeare in Italy Summer School, Florence, July 6-19

Shakespeare in Italy’s 5th summer school is to be held this year at the British Institute in Florence from July 6 – 19. The summer school gives participants the rare opportunity to work with tutors who are leaders in their field in the UK theatre world. Royal Shakespeare Company and Globe directors Lucy Bailey and Chris Luscombe will lead work on Julius Caesar and Romeo and Juliet and acclaimed actor/director Philip Franks on The Two Gentlemen of Verona.

Our course is practical, not academic, and it is open to all, the only proviso being that you speak English fluently. Last year in Pizzo Calabro the group ranged in age from 18 to 95. Everyone took part in putting scenes on their feet but in past years some people have wanted to participate from the comfort of their seats. Both approaches are welcome! 

The benefits are innumerable and people have a lot of fun as well as gaining great theatrical insight into the texts. Please see the PDF below for more details and contact with any questions.
