(Ashland Oregon)

 

Now in its eighth (8th) year, the "Study Away: Shakespeare" trip is an event not to be missed.  Come join your group leader and course instructor, Dr. John Mercer, for a week of Shakespearean fun that you will never forget (and get college credit to boot).

Sponsor:  Northeastern State University's College of Libreal Arts & Department of Languages and Literature.

Term: Fall Intersession 2015 (between Summer and Fall terms).

Purpose: Study plays by Shakespeare and modern playwrights through exciting stage productions.  Earn 3 hours undergraduate credit in English, Theatre, or Humanities, or 3 hours graduate credit in English.

 The Plays:

  • Much Ado About Nothing -- Shakespeare's beloved comedy with sparring lovers Beatrice and Benedick.
  • Antony and Cleopatra -- Shakespeare's exotic tragedy of the conflict between Rome and Egypt.
  • Pericles -- Shakespeare's late romance with a prince, pirates, shipwreck, incest -- and resurrection.
  • Guys and Dolls -- Frank Loesser's sparkling musical comedy about a gambler who loves a missionary.
  • Secret Love in Peach Blossom Land -- Stan Lai's contemporary masterpiece that brilliantly intertwines an ancient Chinese fairy tale with a story of lost love during the Chinese Communist revolution of 1949.
  • Sweat -- world premiere of Lunn Nottage's play about the devastating effects of industrial decline on U.S. workers in the 1990s; her electrifying play Ruined was a highlight of the 2010 seasaon at OSF.
  • Head Over Heels -- a zany modern adaptation of Sir Philip Sidney's pastoral romance Arcadia that integrates songs of the Go Go's from the 1980s.
