We will read aloud in class from provided scripts three iconic plays written throughout history pertaining to women: women as heroines or anti heroines, women at the mercy of their time and place, and women in acting together for power and purpose. The three presently chosen plays are: Lysistrada by Aristophanes, Hedda Gabler by Henric Ibsen, and Lady Windemer’s Fan by Oscar Wilde. If there is time, we will also read St. Joan of Arc by George Bernard Shaw. Now is the perfect time for OLLI to discuss this thematic material as represented in dramatic literature. Please join us and enjoy your summer in our beautiful venue by Lake Michigan.
