Shakespeare In-Depth with Philippa Kelly

Shakespeare In-Depth coming back soon!

Resident Dramaturg Philippa Kelly has returned with a new round of Shakespeare In-Depth this summer!

Approaching each text with the same rich, immersive knowledge she brings to her beloved Grove Talks, Philippa will explore the vital question: what makes these plays so potent for the moment we are living in right now?

Most classes will also include a performance by a beloved Bay Area actor or a visit from a special guest.

Classes will be recorded and take place on Zoom.
