Travel Learning Courses

ENG 258: Shakespeare, A Life in Theatre with Prof. Zack Long

ENG 258 comes with an optional .25 unit travel module to England this Spring Break, from March 8 to 17, 2024. During the trip we will visit Shakespeare’s hometown, Stratford Upon Avon, and then make our way to London, following the trajectory of Shakespeare’s own life and career as he made his way from the country to the city. Along the way we will visit castles and courtly palaces and make at least one day trip to a city where Shakespeare’s theatre company performed on tour, most likely Cambridge or Oxford.

This is 20th anniversary of the Globe Theatre’s intimate indoor candlelit theatre, the Sam Wanamaker Playhouse. This playhouse is based on the earliest surviving plans of an indoor theatre in England, and it is similar in design to the indoor theatre where Shakespeare’s own theatre company performed toward the end of his career, the Blackfriars Playhouse. We will be seeing Othello as well as a wild and rarely performed play by one of Shakespeare’s contemporaries, The Duchess of Malfi by John Webster.

We’ll meet in Phillips 113 Friday, Sept. 22, from 12:10 p.m.-1 p.m.
