DURHAM, N.H. – The University of New Hampshire will host its first “Shakespeare Lab” Friday, Sept. 7, 2012. The event, which will be held from 2 to 5 p.m. in the Memorial Union Building Theatre II, is free and open to the public.
Sponsored by the Department of English, Shakespeare Lab is intended to create a community-building experience for students taking Shakespeare and early modern drama classes this semester as well as the greater UNH community.
“We'll be offering lively, interactive presentations on Shakespeare's language and poetic meter, Renaissance London stage history, and modern performance of Shakespeare. We also will have live demonstrations of acting from some of the stars of the upcoming performance of Macbeth on campus,” said Doug Lanier, professor of English and director of the UNH London Program.
Macbeth runs Oct. 3-7, 2012, at the Johnson Theater.
The University of New Hampshire, founded in 1866, is a world-class public research university with the feel of a New England liberal arts college. A land, sea, and space-grant university, UNH is the state's flagship public institution, enrolling 12,200 undergraduate and 2,300 graduate students.
