Can’t make it to Hanover for Homecoming this fall? Consider celebrating Homecoming in the South with an extraordinary weekend of Shakespeare, scholarship, and Dartmouth camaraderie.

In this multipart event, we’ll see first-rate productions and participate in discussions with Peter Saccio, beloved Dartmouth professor and preeminent Shakespearean scholar, to gain further insight into the work that creates the magic of a Shakespearean play. Professor Saccio will lead us through a literary and theatrical labyrinth of Shakespeare’s plots, language, and themes, discussing their Elizabethan context and the significance subsequent generations have found in them.
