  • Why Shakespeare?

    TOPIC CATEGORY: Entertainment

    So what’s so great about Shakespeare? Bill answers this question in a 50 minute presentation that he calls “a performance oriented lecture” where he illustrates the greatness, versatility, and astounding genius of The Bard by performing and dissecting several of his speeches and monologues. He also talks about Shakespeare the man, and reveals some little known facts and insights about Elizabethan England, Shakespeare and how his body of work came to us. MORE >

    This is not a dry academic lecture, but rather a lively and entertaining exploration of some of the works of the greatest writer that ever lived.

    Much of Bill's presentation is visual, and requires the use of a projector and screen.
