Digital Forum Academy: Shakespeare Deep Dive

Study up on each of the Shakespeare plays coming to the stage in Stratford's 2024 season. Pull your tights up and leap with merriment into the text to explore genre, Shakespeare’s sources, his dramatic structure, and explore central images and motifs. Over this three-week online series, you'll read the full text of the play, contextualizing it within Shakespeare’s life and times through guided instruction and class discussion with Professor Jonathan Ullyot.

No experience is required, except an interest (and maybe love) of Shakespeare. Each series is a maximum of 15 students and will offer the same content.

Jonathan Ullyot is a graduate of the National Theatre School of Canada, earned a PhD in Comparative Literature at the University of Chicago and teaches literature at the Universities of Toronto and Chicago and Seneca College.

Understanding the Romance of Cymbeline

Coming to the Tom Patterson stage in the 2024 season, explore Shakespeare's enormously popular "tragical romantic comedy", freely adapted from the story of the early Celtic British King Cunobeline. We'll explore Shakespeare's sources, his progressive ideas of human sexuality, and the romance genre.

This Digital Forum Academy series is being presented three times and includes three online seminars that take place weekly and three pre-recorded lectures. Seminar dates are non-interchangeable across the series. Please choose from:

  • Seminar 1: Monday, March 18 | 11 a.m.–12:00 p.m.
