Sheffield’s Shakespeare is an inclusive reading and discussion group open to anyone and everyone.
Sheffield’s Shakespeare aims to enable a diverse group of Sheffield citizens to take part once a week in the group reading of Shakespeare’s plays. Anyone is very welcome to come. Scripts of plays are provided. You can join the group to listen rather than to read out loud, if you prefer.
The group is convened by Tony Prince, a postgraduate researcher studying Shakespeare at the University of Sheffield, but it is developing its own approach and identity, and making its own decisions on a collective basis.
The sessions take place in an accessible and comfortable town centre location.

….You may want to take part because you have some time to spare, are interested in Shakespeare’s plays and want to enjoy a fun social experience in a relaxed, informal group.
….You may have had some experience reading Shakespeare or other literature in a group, or of being involved in performance, and want to bring your skills and expertise to the group.
….You may want to be involved in sharing Shakespeare as a therapeutic activity that gives you confidence, insight and a positive experience.
….You may be keen to find out more about Shakespeare, to share your own knowledge of the writer, the plays and his era with others, and to find out more about this enigmatic writer who has reached so many people across the world, and continues to do so today.
The group is inclusive, and celebrates the diversity of people interested in Shakespeare in Sheffield. It is supportive and accessible, and caters for individual needs, as far as possible.
